K-S2 photos Mercury Transet and sunspot

Mercury Transits across the sun taken with the K-S2 through a Thousand Oaks glass filter. An Astro Tec 80mmED telescope was the lens. The sunspot dwarfs the disk of Mercury. The articulating lcd screen was very convenient when when shooting into the sun allowing me to look away from the path of the sunlight. Saving eyesight.
