Date/Time of photo:

8:03 a.m. PST


Nikon D750, Nikon 80-400 telephoto, Thousand Oaks solar filter, CamRanger, and a iPad.


I used a Nikon D750 and an Nikkor 80-400mm lens fitted with a 77mm Thousands Oaks solar filter. To see tiny Mercury, we used a Cam Ranger that wi-fi ‘ed each photo to an iPad, so we could enlarge the picture and re-adjust the shutter speed, ISO, white balance and f/ stop to actually pick up Mercury in the shot. There was also some moisture in the air, so we didn’t get any razor sharp photos. But for shooting with an DSLR and a telephoto lens, pretty darn good.
