- Mercury Transit -
8/Nov/2006, Foster City, California, USA
We were at a perfect location for this event!
This image was taken with a "normal" solar filter using
my 12" scope. For the rest of the images, I used my PST.
Mercury is at about at 60% transit.
3rd contact happened at around 4:06pm PST.
My PST on the mororized mount and the little 5" Orion.
This is a little animated gif showing
the transit with 15 minutes steps.
This one is a QuickTime
movie on the same animation.
