Description

My first attempt to image planet Mercury.

I knew it would be difficult to get a clear image at current climate conditions.
But there are only a few days in the year where Mercury is far enough from the sun and
also at the same time clear skies.

I did not use any filter or chromatic correction devices yet.
( and a Barlow lense would have been completely useless at those air turbulences 14° alt. above horizon)
