Is basespace TTTTN followed by AA, CC, GG or TT

Which is correct? If you have a sequencing error early in the read, such as position 1 or 2 it goes in the garbage?
You map your reads in colorspace. You do not decode the strand and then map. This gives you the benefits of 2base encoding while detecting errors throughout the tag.
