2016-05-09, Mercury transit.

Observed the Mercury transit from Public Observatory Bussloo together with volunteers and visitors. Even though the wind was strong from time to time with a less than mediocre seeing, we enjoyed the transit. After a couple of hours, clouds started to hamper observations more and more but after a dinner break, the skies cleared again and we were given a last look at the Sun and Mercury.

Sunspot AR2192

Been waiting all week long to catch a glimpse of giant sunspot AR2192. Managed to take 2 shots on Saturday before clouds moved in again.

Took my first image with the Lunt 35 and DFK41 webcam combo during a solar photography workshop at our public observatory Bussloo.
Despite clouds, rain and a turbulent atmosphere we were able to collect a lot of images and movies.
A big thank you to Emiel for all the tips and tricks!
