Robert Heffner (280mm SCT)
We're going to be in the rainy season here in about another week or
so,so I'm trying to get as many Venus images in before this
favorable apparition is over. Clouds stand out prominently in the
IR  UV image.

Paolo R. Lazzarotti (250mm Newton)
This is indeed my last Venus image!
By that day on, weather here definitively moved to bad. 

The cloudy planet is getting bigger but thinner, so any cloud detail is getting harder and harder.
Hope to get more images nonetheless as soon weather will improve.
