Mercury Transit 2016

Mercury Transit 2016

I set up the telescope outside my office to take a picture every min. during the transit. This was one of the more favorable images. I used my Celestron Omni 102 XLT and Baader sun filter with a Nikon D5200 camera. Edited in Photoshop for contrast and sharpness and added a splash of color to make it look like I used an expensive solar scope ;)
