How to create a solar filter for Mercury transit
Hi Phil,

Bad news. Looking at the code as currently implemented, there is a lower limit to the transmission of around 0.4%. Anything below that will become zero. I apologize for this. I didn't anticipate the requirements of a solar filter. At the moment there is no workaround.

Although it was a simple matter to stop the crash from happening, it may require major surgery and thorough testing to fix this because the filter data formats may all have to be changed. I do have an idea that might get around that, however. I will look into it and if we are lucky I can have a fix in the next update, which I expect around the end of the year.
Clear skies,
