Beautiful images of Venus planet through amatorial telescope

These sharp images with Venus are so amazing to me, because we have a planet so beautiful neighbor of ours, which we can see with a telescope so well and we can notice it's form. The sun illuminates only one side, giving the impression that you look at a crescent Moon. The color of the planet it's blue, but that is the eyepiece lenses fault. One might say it's Neptune, if it were not so far from Earth.
 The surface of Venus can not be seen because it is always covered in clouds. Many times I was disappointed when I made images of the planet through the telescope, but now, being in opposition, I caught it in her moments of extreme closeness to us, Venus being on opposition at the time.
