Medium resolution Uranus and 5 major moons

I've never photographed the innermost and illusive moon, Miranda.  I think it was nearly washed out in overexposed glow of Uranus at 5sec and full gain.  With delicate sharpening and fine processing of levels A 'spike' off the disk appears in the right spot enough for me to consider it photographed for now.



Here's an animation of the overlaid simulation from WinJUPOS:



I attempted some Infra-Red shots as well but the seeing did NOT cooperate to give any details of banding or polar cap.

Thanks for reading!

I think I'm the kind of person who doesn't like strong opinions.  It doesn't matter if I agree with your opinion or not, it's not factual, it never will be 100% factual and I don't care for it.  That's probably why I hate politics.

I've always loved facts, provable facts of nature and things concerning science.  

Over time, I found that most facts are mostly reference and it was the creation of and discovery of new things that intrigued me.

"A good friend once told me you are our memory
without them we equal nothing
And all I can see is the place I wanna be
Suddenly my life was so free
Leaves at my feet, blown to the ground
their echoes are reaching my ears
Nights coming fast, suns going down" - A7x
