It is nearly impossible to observe Venus' cloud structures visually. Commonly, amateur astronomers believe that these structures can only be veryfied with relatively big apertures and special telescopes.

But the main problem is the correct filtering. By combination diverse colour and interference filters it is possible to enhance contrast - on the other hand, the subtle cloud structures get lost because light of greater than 400 nm enters the camera.
