End of the transit

The end of the transit of Mercury can be seen in this montage of 3 images taken at 4 min intervals just as the planet reached the solar limb. They were captured from my back yard in Victoria using a 105 mm refractor and Canon T3i camera on a Skywatcher mount. Exposures were all 1/1250s at ISO 200.
