Imaged Saturn Sept 19th in good seeing. Targeted the +63 disturbance and have excellent coverage of it crossing the CM. Also in the IR data there is a relatively large dark feature in the EZ it is in 3 of the 4 685nm IR data sets which are at approx 30 minute intervals. The +63 spot is well resolved. The IR animation I have attached here covers 90 minutes of Saturn rotation.
I measure the dark EZ feature to be centred on approx Lat +1.3 L1 168.4, L2 48, L3 259.3 it is seen in the animation entering from the F limb and moving to the CM.
