Hi,

venus season is starting, until conjunction.

 Here is a venus report performed with a 102 mm ED refractor under poor to average images.

With regards to seeing, the dark features were difficult to set on the sketch.

Anyway, adding some brighter area was also mentioned on the sketch close to the limb, but contour undefined.

Phase side is given.

Difficult to say more, more reports under better conditions need to be brought.

Good skies.

Stanislas-Jean

Hi,

After a long rainy period, blue sky this morning and this venus report sent to your attention.

The sky remains still agitated sothat the featuring is kept and levelled average in spite of the 102mm aperture in game.

But anyway this one shows a bright cap and an idea of a banding structure.

Good skies.

Stanislas-Jean

Here is a venus report performed last 1st of june under good images.

The banding structure is commencing to be present.

Both caps are clearer than the whole disk.

I tried to respect the grey tone scale of the dark (relative) features.

Weather is very hot during day sothat seeing is tremendous.

Will see later.

Good skies.

Stanislas-Jean

Get back.

Here is the venus report of last 13rd june performed with the 78mm refractor F13 under good images during the session then, 5/10 after and less.

The banding pattern appeared similar to the 1st june after 3 atmosphere rotations.

Both caps, clear, bright area on the limb as shown.

Have good receipt of the present post.

Good skies

Stanislas-Jean
