Uranus

First ever post in imaging planetary.

I hope you don't expect to see an amazing image of Uranus with amazing planetary detail?

While I was just checking the flattener spacing on the Megrez 72 by imaging any random star field I noticed Uranus was nearby so I thought heck, I'll include it in the fov and repeat the same process next month to see how it's progressed across the frame, exciting eh?

Well here's the first one, sit tight and wait for the second one coming to you soon ;) Just an idea of size, frame is 3x2 deg and Uranus is middle bottom dead centre.

and the spacing turned out to be pretty good too :thumbsup:

Interesting to think that this planet was unknown until it's discovery in 1781 by William Herschel and now we can set up in our backyard and find it immediately, isn't that incredible ?

Even more incredible is the discovery of Neptune, done purely by mathematics based on the unpredictable motion of Uranus caused by the gravitational effect of a body further out in the solar system, great great minds of the time
