Today, Mercury passed in front of the sun and I was able to take some photos by holding my Canon Power Shot D10 up to the eye piece of my home built 6 inch reflector telescope. Our smallest planet travels at over 100,000 MPH and takes 7 1/2 hours to cross the sun.

The smudge in the lower right is a sun spot.
