Observation of Venus from this afternoon. The phase really is now very small,and visually appears to be around 4%. I wondered if there might have been slight cusp extensions,however seeing was rather poor,so I am far from certain of this. Hoping to catch them as we progress towards conjunction in August!

Hope all you southern observers are enjoying Saturn! I have two pitiful drawings which show virtually nothing!

sky is open but filtered by thick cyrrus clouds,the R150mm
will stay at the shed.
See the notes given on the reports.

Here is my latest color image of Venus dated July 30, 2015. 23:07:37 UT. Seeing was 6-7/10 with lots of daylight summer turbulence, transparency 3/5. The north and south atmospheric cusp extensions may have been visible in the eyepiece but I need better seeing than this in order to record their paper thin dimensions. This Venus image was drizzled 1.5x in AS!2 with 300 AP's used, I then resized it 80% in Rv6. Imaging altitude was only 29 degrees and it is lowering every day. The eyepiece view is incredible!
