Here is the Venus report performed on 19th April with the 130mm Cassegrain.
Good sky transparency and average to good images helped to issue the present report.
Banding pattern and relative and thin bright poles was captured with still the same brightness located at the limb.
Nothing more.

Attached is an observation of Venus made on the 19th April.  
Seeing conditions were average, but observing the planet in the day time skies helped to reduce the glare.  
Main points of interest were:
 -Illuminated Disk: Some dusky cloud markings apparent, 
 -one in the far south and a diagonal streak were the most apparent.
 -Bright Limb Band: Just visible and complete
 -Terminator: Geometrically regular.
 -Cusp Caps: I had the impression  that the southern cusp cap is quite large a bright as opposed northern cusp which seemed to be rather dull and ill defined.
 -Cusp collars:  Although there were cloud markings in the usual positions of the collars, I doth think these cloud streaks were real cusp collars.
