Images from Yesterday's Mercury Transit

For those of you who missed the planetary excitement yesterday, here is a collection of images of Mercury's march across the face of the sun along with equipment and process details.

Howard Esklildsen of Ocala, FL took this image with a
Meade 6-inch telescope capped with a Baader solar filter. The perfectly circular silhouette of Mercury appears at bottom, the ragged expanse of sunspot 923 at top. "It was a great view."
The image “” cannot be displayed, because it contains errors.
This image was taken by Adrian of San Jose, CA using a Coronado PST.
