p.1 #1 · A little black spot on the Sun today..... (Transit of Venus)


I brought my telescope out to my kids' elementary school today for the solar transit of Venus and took a quick couple moments to fend off what felt like 3,000 kids and put the camera on the scope. The rush coupled with some horrible seeing from shooting over hot asphalt didn't make the best image but I think the experience the kids had made the best impression! It was really nice to see kids going completely nuts over something real and not manufactured.

Celestron C8 @ 1280mm f/6.3, Canon T1i, Thousand Oaks Optical Type 2 full-aperture solar filter

I was hoping someone would post the transit so I could see it. Thanks. Benzzene
