I've heard rumours of webcam captures of Mercury but never seen them.

I managed to get it on Sunday and took imaging runs of Venus as well with a Skymax 127 and SPC880.

Neither show any surface detail. Mercury is elusive at the best of times and Venus is right round the other side of the Sun, so too far away to expect anything much but both pics clearly show the phase of each planet.

Great attempt.  Those two are more interesting to me than Jupiter :D
