l sometimes observed twilight Venus during this autumn,winter using my porteble 6" D&G refractor on a wooden tripod all hommade in 1999....320mm fixed refractor was not possible to see this west tilt planet.
About 15-20 times observed where l always saw a ilusive mottled features on the planet at x336.
l think Venus is the most beautiful planet to see with naked eyes or even in telescopes because
this planet appears at dusk with Earth landscape .
Pastel colour on a paper is hard to represent its beauty though l attempted here.
