    The November 11 Transit of Mercury is the last for 13 years! This time, it's a morning and early afternoon event for most observers in North America: ingress begins at 7:36 a.m. EST, mid transit occurs at 10:20 a.m. EST, and egress at 1:04 p.m. EST. In the west, the transit will already be in progress as the sun rises, but everyone can see some part of the transit if the weather holds.

    Agena AstroProducts has a complete range of solar observing tools to help you see the transit.

    That includes H-alpha solar scopes from Lunt and Coronado (some of which are on sale right now).

    It also includes a wide range of 'over the objective' white light solar filters that fit nearly any telescope and many camera lenses. We've also got Herschel wedges for white-light observation with smaller scopes, and sheets of solar film so you can make your own solar filter for your telescope.

    And if you want to attempt imaging of the transit of Mercury, try a ZWO ASI224MC or ASI290MM or ASI290MC camera, all excellent choices for imaging the sun with a telescope equipped with a safe solar filter.

    Let's all hope for clear skies and safe observing!
