Here are two H-Alpha images of yesterday's Mercury transit captured at 16:00UT and 17:36UT.  Used Coronado Solarmax II 60, double stacked and ASI 178MM.  Seeing was soft here in Connecticut and there was a layer of thin clouds.  I'm a newbie at solar imaging but I'm still pretty happy with the results.
