Stanislas Maksymowicz (100mm refracter)
Here is the report about venus performed last 27th with the 100m reractor.
Still caps bordered with collars,the banding pattern is very faint and
difficult to capture.
Double collar bordering the South cap,the intervalle being bright as the
cap is,in blue channel color.

Robert Heffner (178mm Makustov Casegrain)
Here is a Venus observation in poor seeing with my 7" MAK from 4/27.
UV image was shot with 100% gain and couldn't get a decent capture due to turbulent atmosphere.
Will give it another try if I can get clear conditions in the early evening.

Herewith two images ofd the Venus clouds taken on the same evening of 27
April 2015 about 1 hour 45 min apart. The growing dark sickle structure is
in agreement with the retrograde rotation of the Venus atmosphere. The
animation shows the effect of the rotation of 6.5 degrees
