Mercury Transit Images

5-9-2016

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.
