Here is the report of Venus performed on May the 21st with the 130mm Cassegrain Under average images.
Banding pattern there and the brightenesses at the limb and the poles were collected.

Some good stable seeing early this evening and I was able to see some interesting details on the planet.
Interestingly,although the seeing was good the details were harder to pin down!
The cloud features seem to have a distinctly mottled appearance.
Bright Limb Band: Visible and complete
Terminator: Geometrically regular.
Cusp Caps: North cusp cap slightly brighter? Hard to be certain.
Cusp Collars; Not seen.
I was hoping to make some observations with the W#47 but unfortunately cloud cover from the west covered Venus
(although the rest of the sky naturally remained clear!).
