Can't remember much going on in '16 ... but it appears I did venture out on the odd occasion ( http://s1241.photobucket.com/user/steveward53/library/2016 Sun?sort=3&page=1 )

Most memorable day was the Mercury Transit day of course , took more shots that day than the rest of the year put together ... :happy8:

All combined here into a rather jittery video , couldn't get the whole thing as the clouds eventually won the day , but got the majority of it ... :happy7:

Best viewed in HD and full screen.

I do very little solar imaging, but I did manage to catch the Mercury transit. I was clouded out initially so it was only a matter of luck that I managed to grab the first contact. Shown here is the transit at about 2 hours in, with an inset showing in a rather cloudy image, between 1st and 2nd contacts.

I just remembered I promised to post a few favourites from 2016, to add the already superb collection here. The obvious place to start is with the Mercury transit!

Sorry for the huge quote, but I LOVE these last two pics. I'm just starting out, but I'd love to eventually be able to take pics like these. Very cool!
