as i said, cheap ass equipment, impromptu setup... but i'm really happy with the result
hand held binoculars, shaky, poorly focussed... camera on autofocus so that's not so hot either... and i still managed to capture three sunspots in that image!!!
(yeah, you have to look carefully, but if you've seen other images of the transit you'll know where they are, a triangle right in the middle)
i don't often boast but i'm pretty chuffed that i was able to do what i set out to do, get an image of venus, any image at all, and i thank his noodly majesty for parting the clouds here in toronto long enough for me
and i'm certainly going to have better equipment for the next one !!!
