Ibayat right in the eye of 170 knot Meranti. Must have been carnage.

Here's a Himawari-8 visible image of Super Typhoon Meranti '16 about an hour before sunset, shortly before maximum 170 kt intensity.

Image

Additionally, here's a VIIRS nighttime visible pass of Meranti shortly after peak intensity, complete with a lightning strike illuminating the eyewall.

I'm going to drop a few microwave images for this thread. The first two are from Vongfong '14 and Meranti '16. The SSMIS pass and AMSU passes from the two storms, respectively are the two highest satellite derived intensity estimates that I am aware of. These estimates are a little of high outliers, even for these intense storms, so it's unlikely they were as intense as these estimates. The SSMIS pass for Vongfong yielded 182 kt/870 mb and the AMSU pass for Meranti yielded 179 kt/892 mb.

Fernanda 2017 was arguably the strongest southern system in the Pacific on record.

:uarrow: some of those intense microwave images looked like radar hook echo with a debris ball.

Or do you mean strongest southern system in the EPAC?

Many typhoons have peaked far stronger near the equator.
