It is a tough object to get a decent snap of. It is very bright but is easier to photograph after half phase.
How can I be one with the universe when we don't know what 96% of it is.

If you have a more leisurely opportunity to image Venus, then try decreasing the exposure times. If you are observing at dusk, then Venus will now rapidly lose altitude, so take every opportunity.
I use an 11" reflector (Celestron CPC 1100) and a 3" refractor, (Sky-Watcher ST80) mounted on an equatorial wedge, housed in a 2.2m Pulsar observatory. I use a ZWO ASI 120MM, ZWO ASI1600MC and Canon 1300D for imaging.
