Venus Transit Viewing
Image by John Huggins
Family enjoys viewing the 2012 Venus Transit event with modest equipment.

Meade SCT telescope has home made filter holder with a small piece of Baader filter material. This worked very well.

Three sets of solar glasses (3 for $5) rounded out this very simple and effective backyard viewing in Virginia.

Clouds caused trouble most of the time, but not before everyone had a chance to see the transit with their own eyes.
