Mercury Transit


Steve MacDonald


I used a Skywatcher 80ED Pro with Baader safety filter fitted. Camera was an Astro GP-Cam.

Images of the transit of Mercury taken yesterday from my garden in Bolton. One image in white light and one with yellow filter. The Sun shone brightly all day long without a single cloud, so I was able to observe the whole event. My wife Kathleen watched as I disappeared under a black cover so that I could see the event clearly on my computer.
