Uranus Image 2019/07/30(UT)
Under average to good images, the first of this present opposition.
A faint banding pattern appeared at the eyepiece, little better with the W8 filter use.
The polar cap looked a little darker than the cap area itself, surrounded by a darker temperate band.
Equatorial zone looked lighter clear then the tilted hemisphere looked as the darker zone.
Next time I will try the bigger aperture, the 254mm. Hope the seeing will be enough favourable.
On the sketch the contrast level was considerably enhanced.
