|7th May 2003 08:30 GMT. Mercury transit.1/250sec exposure with 120mm refractor with barlow onto 200 asa film using Ha filter.
Does not do justice to viewing through a 5mm Nagler - crystal clear image with sunspot 351 also in view. ( Must practise more sun photography ! ).
This is an excellant image of how it actually looked, taken by Eddie Guscott
Next transit is Venus on 8th of June 2004.
