Transit of Mercury 11/11/2019

Managed to catch the first few minutes of the transit before having to go out.

The first image is poor as it was culled from only a few frames of the raw avi. At least its early, between 1st and 2nd contact.

Similarly the prominences were derived from only a few frames.

The second and third are better, as there was a few seconds gap in the clouds for each image sequence.

I then had to leave – – – !

Worth the effort? Yes, bearing in mind I will be 85 in 2032 – – -! Sporting chance I won’t be here then!
