Mercury from Cornwall

Recommended Posts

Being a townie, the opportunities for seeing Mercury are few and far between for me. So a short holiday in Cornwall, at Porth near Newquay, coinciding with an easterly elongation of Mercury had me praying for a clear evening and a low westerly horizon. Sunday 17th April provided both. Canon EOS-M with 18 - 55mm kit lens, 4s at f/4.5, ISO400, cropped from a view taken at 18mm focal length.

Very nice, always good to observe/capture this elusive inner most planet. I have observed it myself a couple of times in the last few weeks, it was surprisingly bright once the skies darkened.
