After waiting through clouds and rain all evening we finally caught a glorious transit at sunset as it was dipping below the clouds. My family and friends scrambled to get a peak and we also somehow managed to quickly exchange the eyepiece for the camera (with T-adapter) fast enough to grab a few photos.
