Mercury Image 2005/06/05(UT)

Although the result image is not good, this is a photo of Mercury just two days after superior conjunction and only 2.87 degrees from the sun. Mercury was 56.7 degrees above the horizon. The telescope was put behind a wall for protection from the rays of the sun. There was wind and turbulence and i didn't have the time to use the red filter. Also the frames were very few and dust particles are visible.
