Stanislas Maksymowicz (280mm,230mm cassegrain or 200mm VMC or 150mm refracter)
Here is the Venus report of last 14th March done with the 200mm Cassegrain.
AL still there at the similar light intensity level than few days ago.
Sky transparency was good and seeing very good on moments.
Notes are given with the reports,roughly:
- light variations on dark side limb highlightes with arrows,
- similar dark markings than previous days,
- light variation over the whole dark side,
- still the yellow-coppered tint on AL.
- the light intensity level was fainter globally than the 2013 AL.

Michel Deconinck (150mm refractor,300mm Newtonian)
This is a pastel (white on black) made of Venus with my refractor 152/1200.
To improve the contrast I used one set of two filters: orange plus green, #12 and #58 together.
A red filter was used to detect the venus limits.The used magnification was 240x.
