Don't know if this was a recent purchase nor the pedigree of your censer but it seems that prices for Qing dynasty bronzes are clearly on the rise so the danger for fakes will increase.
What makes me a bit suspicious about your item is the fact that a whole square area around the Yutang zhenwan mark could be a later addition to the underside. I noticed also three dots that could be junctures.
For comparison, I add a picture of a mark on another Qing bronze. On the other hand, the design of your item seem to be compatible with a similar Yutang zhenwan censer although I cannot verify the authenticity of the depicted object there (see 2nd image).
Just some personal thouhgts.
