Here in Southern California we were treated to mostly clear skies for the transit of Mercury. DSLR images came out best using solr film with the dull side facing out from the objective lens on a vintage Pentax 200 mm prime lens. Mercury is seen as a small period sharing the Sun's face with a sunspot which looked a bit larger. Solar film over the objective lens of 7x50 mm binoculars made for best viewing.
