Mercury Setting

Recommended Posts

Two nights in one week and great views of Mercury setting:

This is one of 84 images I took using a Canon 6D + 50mm lens - click to open full resolution image to see Mercury between the tree and bush:


Used QuickTime to produce a video from the 84 images:


This little video (really short!) was taken with an old Canon G16 - great for low light imaging and star trails/star videos:

Nicely captured, not managed a view of Mercury this time so far.

Thank you Pete.

I was caught unawares on Monday when I saw it, and made a complete hash of trying to record the event - but so pleased that I (and the good lady) had actually managed to see it at all. When I got a second chance I thought I'd best get my act together. I've never knowingly seen Mercury (other than the transit a few years back), so I was well happy. It's been a good few months as late last year I caught a sight of Neptune and Uranus as well - both "firsts".
