This is the Venus Transit of 2012, taken from Sacramento, CA, as seen in the infrared band. Each exposure was approximately 35 seconds apart. Taken with a converted infrared 60D and a Meade 8" telescope.

Hi Christopher
Have you rotated each image to keep the Sun Spots constant ?

I did not rotate the image, however my clock drive was not running very well so I did have to run the series through an image stabilizer (which I'm sure could have been better if I had used something that wasn't free). I only corrected for translation though, not rotation. Since the telescope is on an equatorial mount, rotation did not need correction.
