You might be thinking you already saw those high-res SDO-captures of Mercury passing in front of the sun. Alas this is similar but very different.

Thierry lists the rig for his capture as a “Takahashi FSQ-106ED refractor at f/10, Coronado SM90 H-alpha filter, IDS UI-3370 4 MP video camera.” Nice!
The complete video also caught something else pretty remarkable. Watch:
