Here's pretty much my only good image of Venus.  It's a much harder target than it should be!  The brightness and true fuzziness of the atmosphere make focussing and drawing any cloud detail out of it is a skill all of it's self.  This is just near IR, since it was the most stable in terms of seeing.  She's going to be up and about in the evenings for a while yet, so I hope I'll be able to get some more images soon.
