Now Uranus captured by LX200 8".

I did this before using my 12" Dobson with more success.
( only 10 frames a 5 s ! and therefore a much smaller planet halo/disc)

Uranus moons visible : at : N Titania, E Oberon, S Umbrial, and
at centre passing Miranda ?

Ariel would be at NE, but covered by the halo of Uranus.

I had some problem with focussing, probably need to re-collimate or the CCD was a bit out of square
