Another morning of poor seeing to finish a difficult month of imaging. I finished recording IR685 data early to have enough time for Saturn.

The North Equatorial Belt has a few rifts.
The Equatorial Zone is still orange. A small band of clouds at the equator appears darker than its surroundings.
The Great Red Spot appears to have a small extension on its eastern end.
A white barge in the South Equatorial Belt is rotating out of view.
