    Hi All

    My first attempt at Solar imaging. Ikharos 102mm APO Refractor fitted with Mylar white light filter. Image taken with Modded Philips astro webcam.

    Thanks Paul

    Solar imaging is new to me and proving to be a tad elusive so far for this time of year.

    I will not be anywhere special to observe the transit but will keep an eye out for good images by those who are.

    Nice image James, plenty of detail  there. If you decide to observe the transit you will need a clear NE horizon as the transit will be underway at sunrise. What ever settings you used would be fine for capturing the transit too.
