Previous objects observed: Neptune, Jupiter
Didn't do much last night, but after I was able to resolve Uranus as a disk the other night I thought I'd give Neptune a shot again. I got up to 250x magnification with the 6mm and the 2x Barlow, and I'm pretty sure I saw a tiny disk. I spent some time comparing Neptune at that magnification with some nearby stars, and they were definitely more point-like, so I don't think it was a weird optics thing. So, tentatively I think I was able to resolve a disk from Neptune, albeit a very tiny one.
After I was done with Neptune I looked at Jupiter for a bit. It was its usual banded self, all four Galilean moons visible. Didn't spend much time on it.
