Since I needed to offload the previous RGB, a process which involves freeing a USB port for an external drive, I decided to capture some deep-red/infrared data while I had the USB hub for the focuser and filter wheel disconnected.

The North Temperate Belt is nothing more than a faint line.
The North Equatorial Belt has a new rift past the central meridian.
The Equatorial Zone contains an intense festoon approaching the CM.
Even though the EZ has traded its typical white color for orange in RGB images, it still looks normal in infrared.
The teal spot on the SEBn in the RGB image is very dark in infrared.
There is a bright spot past the CM just off the SEBs.
Oval BA is approaching the CM with the STB Ghost trailing it.
There is a subtly dark feature setting on the South Temperate Belt. Is this a new STB structured segment?
The South Polar Red Spot is setting.
