Description

Hi,

This is my version of Mercury's transit. My first time with this kind of work.

I used my deep sky setup, and added my ND 1000 and ND8 filters. I also used step down rings to reduce the aperture (ok, I should have taken a solar filter, maybe next time).

I've made around 180 pictures, at ISO 200 and exposures from 1/500 to 1/4000 to match the different light conditions ;-)

The picture is a composite from selected images to show the transit.

The other versions show a gif where we can see the transit, with passing clouds, until the sun reaches the house roof, and the setup.

I'm quite satisfied with this, and I hope you like it too.

Cheers, David.
