On Tuesday June 5th a very rare event occurred – the transit of Venus across the Sun. The next one will be in 105 years! I was was able to capture the beginning of the transit before the clouds rolled in. The setup was a 130mm f/8 astronomical refractor on an equatorial mount, focal length 1,040mm with a D800 as the imager. Exposure was 1/400 sec at f/8, ISO 100. A Baader solar film filter was used to reduce the bright sunlight to safe levels. Note the sunspots and clouds covering some of the images. There was a thin haze over all of the images, reducing the claity. (Click on thumbnail for larger image.)
