May 9, 2016 Mercury Transit

My first time to witness a Mercury Transit. The sun was almost at my zenith and therefore it was difficult to image using only a video tripod, C90 Maksutov-Cassegrain telescope (with solar filter), and DSLR. To minimize the weight, I used my iPhone to take this shot. I wish I could observe longer, but I’m not allowed to stay too long under the sun because of Lupus.
