Had hospital appointment today and didn't get home untl1430 but got telescope all ready. There was a few gaps in the clouds but the sun stayed stubborm]nly behind clouds until it was too low for me to see. anywaythis transit will have to join the list of other things that I will never see again. Hope you were more successful at Letterston.
I managed a total of a few minutes viewing Mercury through the gaps in the cloud. I was also amazed at how small Mercury was. Didn't manage to get any photos though.Had to pack up and leave at 1pm after which there was much more clear sky, so a pity nobody could make it to Letterston as it seems it was one of the best places to be for a view.
