Here's my first whole disc image, shows how accurate Cotterless's sketch is!

Thanks for all the great images. It was too cloudy for any imaging where I am in France but I saw some of the live feeds that were available on the web.  After the event, I found myself wondering if anyone had created a site where several live feeds from around the world were simultaneously presented - a sort of dashboard of feeds.  That would allow you to look at any that were not currently clouded over and might also allow you to see and compare parallax effects from different points of the compass, especially at Contact.  It would be beyond my capabilities to do this but might involve an adaptation of videoconferencing technology. Has it been done for transits or eclipses anywhere? 

This would actually be quite easy. Google hangouts would work.

Another one salvaged from the grot. Luckily there was a rectangle virtually without dust. Stacking in AS!2 and Registax then combining both roughly 50/50 seems to have eliminated all the noise.

The next Mercury transit across the Sun will occur on 2019 NOV 11. The Americas, Europe, Africa, and the Near East will be in the zone of visibility.
