Venus on 25th of May
      #5884480 - 05/25/13 06:20 PM Attachment (23 downloads)

Here is the observation of Venus performed last 25th May.
I used the refractor 100mm with 167x.
Banding system was not captured actually but the main conspiscious albedo features were seen.
Polar caps was clear and bright for the south cap with W29 filter.
Bad to average images at the beginning then good for short times, observation stopped by the clouds.
The subject is difficult considering the tiny disk to-day and the conditions during the period of observation.
Issued here anyway for the forum.
Last 11th of May clear bright patches were reported in south temperate hemisphere (CM2: 324°).
