At 300mm, Venus will still be pretty small to image. If you were pushing 1000mm, it may provide more detail, but anything you might shoot will just be a dot. I would recommend maybe 1.3 sec, F9 at ISO 1600.

Example image I found with a Canon t5i with those setting at 300mm: EXAMPLE

Venus is a good subject at dusk or dawn as well.

Venus has quite a chaotic atmosphere. I remember during my years of astronomy often using my telescope to watch it.
We could see the clouds twirling around. It was really cool.
Pro astronomer also theorize killer storms so maybe you saw bolts.

Otherwise it can also be (like stated by other members) artifacts created by humidity reflection/refraction.

Otherwise, astartes VS eldar in an epic battle fight :p
