Before doing Jupiter the other night, I also did Venus while I was waiting for it
to get dark enough for Jupiter to appear.
Just processed it now, and it looks like there's some interesting "blotches"
Maybe clouds?

Clouds or 'openings', in the clouds showing surfacemarkings? :)

Venus shouldn't blue. It should light yellow with few saturation.

Some of my Jupiter images have turned out green, so I applaud the effort.

About colors, like someone else in another posting said, Colors are a personal choice. I have seen all kind of colors here. Green Lagoons (M8) and also Green Pelican nebula . Filters and subs are used in all variants. Its not much of living up to scientific norms, its more like a artistic way of choice .

I think :)

I wasn't too worried about the colour, because I didn't know what colour it's meant to be.
So I just used the same colour adjustments I use for Jupiter and Saturn.
Also I am colourblind (red/green) which makes it harder. But I do like to try and get the colours right
if I can. Colour is pretty easy to fix.

Alignment point artifacts. Most common in RegiStax 6 stacks, but sometimes they'll appear in AutoStakkert results. They'll pop more into view when you sharpen it a bit more and stretch it aggressively.

To my eyes, Venus looks white right now. Maybe a very very pale yellow but as it goes towards the horizon more and more red.
