Transit of Venus I


Transits of Venus in front of the sun are extremely rare. The last one happened 1882, and the next one will be in eight years, but hardly visible from Europe. After that it won't occur till 2117 and 2125.

Canon EOS 10D
Camera mounted on telescope ( Intes MIcro MN76,f = 1080mm) with Baader Solarfilter; 1/1000sec@IS0100 full exif

other sizes: small medium original

I remember that wonderful day. Excellent image as all the impressive and super technique shots on this gallery. My sincere congratulations Gerhard.
