Equipment Details:

This photo was taken from the observatory screen Using my iPhone,showing mercury transiting across the sun. You can barely see a black dot between eight and 9 o’clock positions on the face of the sun.
Fascinating to see this looking through the huge Astro scopes that were set up at the observatory.
