Hi,

 

I will be on a cruise when the upcoming Mercury transit occurs.  I will have my DSLR and filter for White light handheld shots of the transit but was hoping to find a good way to do a projection so I can timelapse the transit with my gopro.

 

Something like the fold-able Keplerian telescopes that project the image onto paper.  The only problem is commercial versions are over $400.  Ridiculous for some wood and a few lenses.

 

Anybody have ideas on how to set up a compact version or plans to build a home built version.  My google has failed me.

 

I may resort to binoculars and duct tape...
