Found Uranus

Recommended Posts

Woohoo! I'll join the club ;)

Very distinct small disc. No chance of any detail on the disc though...

Just Neptune to go now...

Yes, I saw the same thing, Io coming out from Jupiter, watched it for about 1/2 an hour. Saw the red spot in my 127 mak + baader 12.5 mm ortho but it was touch and go. The 7mm ortho was hopeless.
