To round out Jupiter imaging for the night, I decided to capture a methane image to reveal the altitude of clouds.

There is a bright spot on the central meridian at mid-northern latitudes. As far as I can tell, this spot is almost indistinguishable in visible light and faintly outlined in deep-red/infrared.
The southern edge of the Equatorial Zone is darker than the rest.
The South Equatorial Belt is split by a zone.
