Mercury in the Morning + Moon

Post by JohnM »

I have put a few of the images I took of Mercury and the crescent moon on the 18th & 19th November 2006 at http://picasaweb.google.com/JHKMurrell have a look at the Moon & Mercury Page

The other Mercury page there shows some images of Mercury in the evening sky in June 2006.

All taken with a Canon 10D The ones on the 19/19th were on a static mount and the others using a Meade Telescope as a guided tripod

Thanks for the comments - they were taken from my 'Bedroom Observatory' in reality a camera mount fixed to the window frame of my bedroom ! So I did not have far to go. Saw Mercury this morning but it was behind a tree that is too thick to get any sensible images !
