Imaged Saturn Sept 9th in good seeing, the best I have had in 2015 for Saturn. My data covers just over 68 minutes of Saturn rotation. The +63 spot had passed the CM prior to my acquisition of Saturn, which was with the sky still quite bright. I have 3 685nm IR data sets at approx 30 minute intervals and the spot is nicely resolved in all of them and is also well seen in my IR polar projection at 08:52 UTC. My R & RGB data, which is quite high res shows no hint of the +63 spot. The spot is very well seen in my IR animation.
