A color photo of distant Uranus (far left) showed few cloud features, but an infrared filter reveals invisible belts and zones crossing the giant planet.
Peach says: "Finally some very steady air came this way during the early hours of Sep 20th which allowed a good series of Uranus images to be taken. Straight RGB colour is far left, while the other three images are all LRGB using near IR filters as luminance. No storms are seen, though the belt/zone pattern is clear. C14HD with ASI224. LRGB with RG610 and IR685 filters."
