    The sun was viewable via a homemade sun projector.

    Great shots. I had a pretty dense filter with me but didn't have a telephoto handy. Actually, it's the first time I've ever wanted a tele lens. Hmmm. I'll have one by 2117 when this happens again.

    Venus Transit in Lens Flare by grantb photos, on Flickr

    Olympus E-P3 with Bell & Howell 3 inch f/4 cine lens and a stack of telescope eyepiece filters (thus the blue). 1/4000s was too slow to keep from blowing out the sun, but Venus is visible in the lens flare. The lines are power lines.

    Cool shots, guys! I didn't dare to take a shot without any special filters. I was told that using regular ND filters might still risk damaging the camera sensor...

    This is mine, using the GH2 and 100-300mm lens, with a variable neutral density filter. My picture was taken late in the day near sunset and it was getting hazy.

    Venus transit

    I shot this with my Droid Incredible 2 after my neighbor invited me over to take a look through his telescope. It turned out better than I expected for just holding the phone up to the telescope eyepiece. Venus_transit_crop.

    Venus transit

    I am on a duty trip in Denver, CO.
    This transit happened at 4pm.
    I was lucky that the clouds disappeared at 4pm and after my shots they came back.
    Cheers,
    Mike
