Mercury transit on 2003, May 7


my first photo of the planet Mercury!

   Mercury observation on 2004 march 30th approx. 08:02 pm cest till 08:50 pm cest between Plauen / PLAMAG
   and Kauschwitz with my 60 / 800 refractor and my 7x50 binocular. Two days before, we tried to find
   the Mercury. Unfortunately I supposed that the planet stand too low over horizon. Because of this I
   thought that the planet is set, but he still stand higher. At last I could make a pic from the planet
   Mercury through my 60 / 800 refractor telescope with our praktika 1,3 Mpxl digital camera
   (the camera was hold in my hands behind the eyepiece).
   I could see the planet through the telescope, my wife helped holding the camera, when I changed the eyepiece.
