David Arditti (250mm Dall-Kirkham Cassegrain)
These are the only images of Mercury I have ever taken.
Seeing was poor on both occasions,but the Feb 06 images have come out much
clearer. There seems to be a consistent semi-circular intensity pattern centred
on the centre of the disk. Whether this is real or artificial I have no way of
knowing. This is the unmapped side of Mercury.
