Description

I was fortunate to have some success observing the transit of Mercury across the Sun today. The morning started out with thin high clouds, but I was able to observe the start of the transit starting just after first contact. This image was taken shortly after second contact once I had the focus dialed in a bit better. Shot at high iso to keep the exposure short and freeze the atmospheric seeing. Many more to come...

Imaged with a C8 Evo and Nikon D750. Imaging train was configured to give me ~F/10. Single frame with 1/2500 sec at ISO-3200.
