Rent a golf cart and take your life in your hands cruising the streets of San Pedro. This pic doesn't look bad, but the streets get very busy with cars, carts, motorcycles, bikes, pedestrians and children playing in the streets. There are very few rules. Just don't hit anyone else. That's my kind of driving!
I was wishing something like this existed, but was surprised to find it does exist! Turn your ordinary digital camera into a wifi camera with one of these very cool SD card. Never remove your sd card again.
I've been using it on this trip. It takes a little setup at first, but now, after a day of taking pictures i just turn the camera power on while "near" my phone or tablet and it automatically/wirelessly transfers the pics to my phone, then my phone uploads them to picasa or other online service. Super simple...automagic!

But since Venus' transit across the sun is all the rage today, and since it won't happen for another 105 years I just had to dig it out.
So I threw on the Solar Filter...
And started snapping some pics - these are about the best I got...
I didn't power up the telescope motor so it wasn't auto-tracking. I had to keep adjusting manually as the sun moved. That's kind of a pain... and boy was it hot out there!
Here are my pics of the "Venus transit" this afternoon. I used my digital camera and just held it
to the eyepice of the telescope. They are a little shakey, but I didn't have time fora full equipment setup... :-) (Oh yeah, a lot of sunspots visible, you can see some in these pics)
