Default Circles: The Transit of Venus

Taken a month ago during the transit of Venus across the face of the sun.

Used a Sony A700 with a SIGMA 400mm lens and sun filter.

Neat shot!

I know several people who got reasonable shots of it. One had some real adversity (when he found his hut in the brush that had grown up since he had last visited it, he discovered the ceiling had fallen, then his primary camera wasn't working right. But the pictures he emailed me taken with his back-up and his telescope were incredible!).

Vsch1, Mtngal, Wave01,
My shots were taken with my camera handheld and the filter held with my free hand in front of the camera lens. Not too high tech. I can't imagine what a rig with a telescope could produce.

Aloha
