First Mercury image after inferior conjunction, exactly 14 days after my last sighting. 
Had to use the refractor again, because at the small distance to sun in the sky 
the C14 would have caught direct sunlight. Found Mercury "digitally", 
i.e. via attached camera. Visual sighting was impossible. Seeing was very unsteady.
