The Transit of...Venus?

Like alot of enthusiastic photographers and celestial events follower, I was keen to catch the Transit of Venus on the 6th of June, 2012.  And I was lucky enough to hook up with members of the local Astronomical group, who had a telescope aimed at the event, in ham radio contact with other like-minded folk who kindly allowed me to attach my camera to their telescope and snap some 'last chance to see in our lifetime' shots of the Transit of Venus.
We had clear weather, for the most part, and the view was great!
And the same, pushed red (mainly for effect)
But...wait.  Look again...
And again closer...
