Neptune 2.9.2006 1.35
2,3" size blue disc of Neptune.
Uranus 21.8.2015 1.53
A rare stretch of relatively good seeing produced some images with faint features in them.
Uranus 21.8.2015 2.38
This last image of the night shows banding and brighter polar region even better.
Neptune 22.8.2015 23.32
Neptune captured from very low altitude, the bluish color is clearly visible.
Uranus 23.8.2015 2.28
This and the next image show again some albedo differencies on the disc.
Uranus 23.8.2015 2.52
The same dark and light areas as in previous picture can be seen here also.
Uranus 24.8.2015 2.47
Beautiful pale disc of the ice giant.
Uranus 21.9.2015 1.23
The seeing was steady but transparency was poor, so nothing much more than the shape and color can be seen.
Uranus 10.10.2015 23.40
A True-color image of Uranus. Polar region towards the Earth is on the right.
Uranus 12.10.2015 23.34
Seeing was steady and transparency was also goodish allowing some banding to show. The polar region to the right is clearly brighter than the rest of the disc.
Uranus 6.9.2016 2.20
A composite of Uranus and 4 moons, from left to right: Umbriel, Ariel, Titania and Oberon.

From left: Titania, Umbriel, Miranda, Ariel, Oberon.
The Moons of Uranus 23-24.10.2017 22.08-0.20
A link to the animation of the moons is Here.
Uranus 24.10.2017 0.13
Some brightness differencies are seen in this and other images of the night.
Uranus 24.10.2017 0.26
The polar region is clearly less dark.
Uranus 24.10.2017 0.44
And the last image showing the same faint details.
The Moons of Uranus 11.10.2018 0.37
All five "easily" visible moons are on the same side. Oberon is on the bottom, the rest from left to right: Miranda, Ariel, Umbriel, Titania.
Uranus 11.10.2018 0.42
This and the 2 next images taken at F20 show some faint albedo differencies.
Uranus 11.10 2018 0.53
Seeing changed within seconds during imaging resulting different levels of sharpness.
Uranus 11.10.2018 1.03
And the last image showing the same faint details.
The Moons of Uranus 11.10.2018 1.27
Two more images showing the 5 moons.
The Moons of Uranus 11.10.2018 1.34
And the last one with slightly different settings. Miranda is hard to see, but just visible..
Neptune 14.10.2018 20.29
Neptune from 16 deg. elevation.
Neptune 18.10.2018 20.21
Another low altitude image.
Neptune and Triton 18.10.2018 20.24
The 7th biggest moon of Solar system at 7.30 in this picture. 120 1s exposures.
The Moons of Uranus 19.10.2018 0.25
Only 4 moons were visible, from top to bottom: Oberon, Ariel, Umbriel, Titania.
Uranus 19.10.2018 0.28
Seeing was quite bad, so only shape and color can be seen here.
Neptune 22.10.2018 20.25
So far the "best" of my Neptunes.
Neptune and Triton 22.10.2018 20.28
The moon has moved to the other side compared to 18.10. 150 1s exposures.
Neptune and Triton 28.10.2018 19.08
The moon is on the same side again as the orbital period of Triton is 5,88 days.
The Moons of Uranus 28.10.2018 21.48-23.48
Only 4 moons were visible, from top to bottom: Oberon, Umbriel, Titania, Ariel. Animation is here.
Uranus 28.10.2018 22.02
Tried to get something out of Uranus but the seeing was not good enough.
Uranus 28.10.2018 22.11
IR image showing big differencies in brightness.
Uranus 28.10.2018 22.58
