Kindly find two captures of Neptune at IR>685nm from 9 December.

The last imaging session for 2017 of Neptune for us - too low & too early to image now!
We anticipated perhaps capturing more Eq. storm activity according to the latst ephemeris & the seeing was quite good, 
expecially considering the elevation: even Triton was visible in the live feed...
but apart from a spot at about -30S
 (fairly confident of this because of the movement between the 2 frames in the animation) nothing but obscure shading etc was evinced.
Here is the better of the 2 images as well as the 2 frame animation & the spot measurement image.
