On May, 6th the planet was found in the day time sky (local time 4 p.m.) and
we began shooting at altitude of 51 degree (altitude of Sun was 35 degree).
We held Mercury in focus of 15 meters within 3 hours and 20 minutes and
took video only during the moments of calm atmosphere. As a result of shooting
we got about 70000 frames of video. All video was divided into 2 parts and
each part was processed independently. We received 2 images. We were pleased
with good correlation between these images. For greater confidence we also
combined these images and received the average image (Sum) which is the result
of processing 6000 of 67544 frames.
