Jim proves that perpetually changing camera gear costs money, time and energy - and likely won't lead to better images!

two weeks later, another spot on the sun!
This time it's Venus masquerading (quite poorly) as a sunspot.
Of course the moon did an even poorer job of it!
I watched Mercury do this ten years and more ago, so it's nice to complete the group. Now all the major items that pass in front of the sun have been seen: Moon, Merc and Venus - other than the occasional rogue micro-planet or comet that's it. I won't be holding my breath for any of those, but who knows what future sights are in store for us?
