2019-Transit of Mercury

2019-Transit of Mercury

The Nov 11, 2019 transit of Mercury happened during a cloudy morning in Victoria. I had set up my telescope the day before just in case and was rewarded with a very brief partial opening of the clouds. I fired of some shots and managed to capture a couple that showed the planet.
