About this image

Taken over three afternoons in succession when I was able to lock on to Mercury in a gap between houses while the Sun was blocked from view. This was partly experimental trying out two cameras and two IR pass filters to find the optimal combination for seeing detail on Mercury's tiny disc.

Hi Peter, 

Nice images. What is the difference between 1 and 2? 2 looks the best to me BTW.

Cheers, Martin
