Imaged Saturn June 30th and have nicely resolved the +63 spot & extended disturbance.

Here is a longpass red light filter image of Saturn from June 30th. Dreadful seeing down at 17deg altitude but enough to detect the bright equatorial spot recently reported by Agustin Sanchez Lavega.
I referred to the ephemerides produced by Marc Delcroix and the spot was pretty much dead on track for the drift rate measured in previous images.

We have continued testing the new ASI224 colour cam for ZWO.  

The camera continues to display its capabilities although this time the
seeing was fairly poor & we could only capture one 6 minute colour capture &
create a North polar projection... 

Winter weather makes it difficult to find imaging nights with good
transparency & good seeing...
