Nikon P600, on a tripod, with a solar filter.
Just cropped a little sky off the left side.
One of my better - if a little off center - shots from this morning's Mercury Transit. Took my lunch early, went down to the parking lot, set up the camera on the tripod, attached the solar filter, and stood there taking pictures for about 45 minutes, hoping to catch at least a few without the haze of cloud cover like I got the last time. Wrangled up a couple of decent ones. Have some that are centered better, but this one seems to have caught Mercury at its sharpest. I was pleased.
