At this magnification the rotation of the earth quickly carried the planet and sun out of the telescopes´s field of view. That´s why the image is slightly motion-blurred. Only three large bodies come between the Sun and the Earth: Venus, the Moon (as seen from Iceland last year) and Mercury. The next Mercury transit is in 2006. It will be a much smaller dot than either Venus or (certainly) the Moon.  Digiscoped with Canon S330 camera and Meade ETX 125 telescope, June 2004.
The 2005 nest is further away than in previous years so it was necessary to use digiscoping to get Junior IV on June 5.  Televue 85 telescope, Canon S45 digital camera.

Transit of Venus, taken in New York City, June 5, 2012.  I was on extended assignment and didn’t have my big scopes or camera, so I took this with a small handheld camera through my binoculars, which were covered by a solar filter.  I have some somewhat better photos from the 2004 transit.  Transits come in pairs separated by long gaps, so the next transit will not occur until 2117.
