Transit of Mercury 2 - 2016-05-09

This is the second shot of the transit of Mercury which took place in May 2016. The picture was taken with my 8" telescope and a white light solar filter. Soon after this shot the Sun was completely clouded out and that was the end of my observation of the transit. At least I did see some of it!
