Success! We found Uranus

We had a nice turnout, at least 30-40 people, for our "Moons over Efrat". Beside me and Daniel I saw at least 2 other families who came with their own scopes.
The weather was perfect and the people where interested, what more could one ask for.

Now I can put one more notch in my scope having finally bagged Uranus. Like Gadi said, it can be seen pretty easily in the finder scope, as long as you know what to look for. I showed it to lots of folks in 50 and 125 power, and several of them (without my prodding) remarked that it looked blue!

Thanks again to Daniel for organizing the night and getting me out of the house!
