An observation of Venus I made this afternoon.  Seeing was rather poor and it was also rather windy at times, still there were a number of things of interest.  It seems that there was a dark streak to the far south, and some further markings on the disk centre.  Also:
  • Bright Limb Band: Visible and complete
  • Terminator: Geometrically regular.
  • Cusp Caps: It seemed to me that the southern cusp was brighter- this was also true in the W15 filter.
  • Cusp collars: Not sure- may have been visible.
