Cool! I don't know much about this type of photography. Do you use filters to cut down on light?

Well i used a cheap plexiglas for a filter, the result was much better then i expected :D
I bought some cheap plexi filters online to see if i would spend some money on a real high end ND filter and it was realy teh first time i tried them out. But they didn't fit the 150-600 so i used som tejp to hold it in place :D

Thanks for the explanation. I'm glad the experiment was successful. And I'm also proud to say that I guessed the right spot for Mercury. :)
