Mercury 5th April


Recommended Posts

Managed to image Mercury between the clouds before losing it completely behind a tree. There was a definate contrast in colour compared to Venus in the eyepiece. Mercury was slightly pink.

The seeing was poor and the phase looks close to 50% illuminated in my image. Not sure the focus was 100%, had to grab what I could between clouds.
