More transit of venus images (Western Sydney)

Camped out on the verandah all morning and was lucky enough to grab a few shots between breaks in the cloud (missed out on 1st/2nd contact though )
Now that its raining and my scopes covered with a tarp, figured I'd upload some photos while for the clouds to clear again lol

I still have difficulties achieving a nice sharp focus though..

Taken Afocal with CanonEOS450D and 200x100 Newtonian with solar film
(First image was first contact, second is near maximum transit)

Edit: probably should have posted this in the beginners section, mine look inferior the experienced photographers here
