This isn't a brilliant image of the transit of Mercury 11-11-2019 but the weather was terrible. This image was taken between clouds just before sunset with a white light filter and my Altair Astro 66mm doublet with 2.5x Barlow and Canon 600d DSLR. The unusual bit being, it was taken by me hand holding this ungainly telescopic lens combo whilst leaning, well past my natural angle of repose and well outside my first floor bedroom window.
