One last look
at the Transit using a hand held Digital Camera shooting through the Televue 76mm Telescope and a 40mm Pentax XW Eyepiece. 

The Truck offered often needed shelter from the rain.

Sunset (very yellow) from Vancouver, Washington.


The original plan was to image the Transit from Central Oregon, but conflicting weather reports created the impression that I should return home to Vancouver.  As it turns out, Central Oregon would have been the better site.  Never-the-less, I did manage to acquire several interesting images.
