attached it is my very first result with Venus, taken in full daylight with planet close to meridian.
On ALPO Japan you can find a more scientific version of the same image, I mean that I did not attach the disc on black background and I was much more careful with UM. Here there's a cosmetical version, so to say, more pleasant to the eye The typical venusian V cloud pattern is visible.
Pure reflective telescopes are definitely better suited for this kind of work, but, with some effort, something can be obtained with small SCT's as well.
