Mercury Transit 2016.05.09

We set up the telescope in Cabbagetown Park, Atlanta to share the event with our neighbors.  In addition to creating this image, several people took their first ever look through a telescope, witnessing a rare planetary transit of the Sun no less.  This was also my first time using the solar filter and observing the Sun through my telescope.
