Pictures of a Transit

The Transit of Venus. Some images from Denise as I was too busy answering questions and repositioning telescopes. Denise spent a lot of time repositioning the hydrogen alpha telescope and was very busy the entire time as well. We saw most of the transit clearly until a bank of clouds (with rain) came in. Due to the haze in the air (being on an island in the South Pacific) we saw the tear drop effect quite clearly as seen in the following images.
