Marc reports a rather rich astronomy week (3 observations sessions from the middle of the night to dawn, with each time good seeing), and including his first Uranus this year, taken with a new webcam, the ZWO ASI 224MC. He reports spending more than half an hour trying to aim the scope at Uranus, made more difficult with a Dobsonian and Telrad without any coordinate circles. This is a single 15min run, with the same focal length as he uses  for Saturn and only 120ms exposures. As you can see, the result is really good, showing clearly a white band near the North pole.
