A new solar transit for me, after quite some time since my last such event. This time I went not too far away, South of Bucharest, with another astro-fanatic, Andrei Nica.
Lovely location, rather hot, and clear skies around our target…
As always, just as the event time was near, a nice little fluffy cloud formed near the Sun…The seeing went a bit crazy, but we’ve managed to catch the ISS in front of the blank Sun.
Equipment: 150mm F/5 homemade refractor (AT f/15), Herschel prism, green filter, ASI 174MM. Prediction via CalSky website.
Images as follows: single frame from the sequence, a composite image of the acquired frames onto a single image and an inset of a 23-frame stack, the color version of the previous.
