Dear Paul,Now Uranus is out of the murk, I’m seriously tempted to have ago. At observing this under observed planet.I have a modest 250mm 1200fl F4.8 Newtonian, with some good quality Vixen LV’s and a x2 Barlow. The highest practical power with this equipment, when the seeing allows. Could be x400 and on rare occasions x600. So I should see the planet as a tiny disk. Whether I can resolve any cloud belts is another matter. However I will let you have any observation’s and drawings if you wish.
