Other Peoples Transit of Venus Images and Videos

Transit of Venus by Cynthia Ma from Sydney.

I'm still processing my images, so I thought I'd put up links to fantastic images that people have sent me or pointed me to. Cynthia Ma's image to the left is great.

Comet Al has a brilliant series of images and a great animation taken using a simple projection system.

Rob Kaufmann has a wonderful shot from Bright Victoria, he had less luck with second contact due to turbulence as this video shows. Chris Wyatt has a great video of second contact from Burren Junction, NSW. Chris of SiriusCybernetics has some great shots. Hristo Pavlov got some nice images from Sydney despite the weather. Adam Marsh has a nice series of photos. Roland Gesthuizen has a great Storify essay.

In the international section a good video from Taiwan. The transit of Venus with a seagull and with a plane . A cloudy one from Dorset by  Stuart and of course a huge Flickr gallery  http://www.flickr.com/photos/tags/transitofvenus/

The Bad Astronomer has a great Transit gallery too.

UPDATE:  I forgot Andrew Thomas' stunning images at his blog,  Dennis Persyk's transit images and astronomy boy's transit images. Sorry folks!

Great links for photos of the transit. Wasn't too spectacular for me as I didn't opt for a projection from telescope but instead took shots directly with a small camera.
I did binocular projection AND the digital camera through the scope thing so I got to see AND photograph the transit
Cool, looking forward to see your pictures
