Transit of Venus

You may have seen about it in the paper or the net, but most don't get the opportunity to see the transit since you need specialized equipment. I took these using my 8" LX10 Meade telescope, solar filter and camera at prime focus. Exosure is 1/3200s. First contact at 18:06 local time. Second contact (pictured below) at 18:23.

To see all the pics, here's a link to my Facebook album.
