Mercury Transit Images
These are a few of the photos that our members have taken of the May transit of Mercury.
From a simple IPhone snapshot through a white light filter to a high end H-Alpha shot of Old Sol in all its convoluted splendor.
Contributors are: Art Schneider - IPhone shot thru the eyepiece.
Rich Merten - Panasonic DMC- FZ35 mounted piggyback on tracking scope.
Terry Zimmerman - 12-1/2" with DSLR using 2x power mate and photographic Paracorr.
Nick Black - H-Alpha filter. I have also added a link to a great NASA video.
