It has been a very long time since I've attempted methane band imaging. The good conditions made it seem appropriate to start capturing them again. After this image, a solid deck of clouds came in while working on an RGB set and ended the imaging session.

The southern Equatorial Zone is darker than the rest of the zone.
The teal spot that caught my attention in the RGB image is dark.
The bright spot in the RGB image off the southern South Equatorial Belt is invisible.
Oval BA is bright.
