Walking on the Moon

Mercury passage and sun spots


Recommended Posts

Here are my sketches of the Mercury passage 2016 at 17:00 local Norwegian time. First the whole picture with 60x magn through a thin haze of cloud. An hour later I drew in Mercury again and as the cloud was gone, I could add some more sun spot details. This time I could use 125x magn.

After that I made new details of the sun spots with the 12mm ortho eyepiece (125x). They should be a bit better in the right position towards each other.
