Transit of Mercury from Victoria

Transit of Mercury from Victoria

The 2016 transit of Mercury was well underway as the sun rose. This image was captured from my back yard in Victoria and shows a nice sunspot group (upper middle left) and mercury (lower middle right. I used a 105 mm f/7 refractor and Canon T3i camera on a Skywatcher mount. Exposure was 1/1250s at ISO 200.
