A bad image of the Transit of Mercury, May 9, 2016, shot with the old G6 camera through Televue 85 telescope.  Mercury is the dot toward the lower left.  The day was mostly cloudy/hazy and I was surprised to get anything at all.  For some of my better sun images, see the Partial Eclipse from 2014, the Transit of Venus from 2004, or the Annual Eclipse as seen from Iceland in 2003.
Transit of Mercury, Nov. 11, 2019.  Mercury is the tiny dot near the center of the Sun.  No sunspots, unusual.
