Good job you don't live here then :-)
This is Venus transiting the Sun.
Taken from my garden this morning. Projected image from telescope.
Reproduction poor due to having to shrink the pic + some cloud about.

That's a dodgy egg yolk. You can't fool me





Two Irishmen,
Paddy, is that the sun or the moon?
I wouldn't know, I don't live around here.

Glenn - you've got a spot of dirt on your lens mate - bottom middle.

Thanks PK, glad you like it :-)
Probably got one of the last eclipse of the sun. I'll hunt around.
I'm not properly tooled up for night photo's yet. Digital cameras don't have attachements for fixing them to the eyepiece holder. Need to make a Heath-Robinson lash-up to try it.

Cheers
Glenn
