Lens and Screen Cleaning Cloth: Captain Cook and The Transits of Mercury and Venus in 1769

Polishing was never so glamorous...ordinary becomes extraordinary

Luxury lens and screen cleaning cloth.

Inspired by Captain Cook's first voyage through the Pacific in 1769.

We carefully studied Cook's ship's log, marine chart and diaries. These gave us a wealth of ideas for our design.

The primary aim of Cook's first voyage was to observe the transits of Venus and Mercury past the sun. Timing these at several places was the first way to accurately estimate the distance to the sun. He observed the transit of Venus at Tahiti on June 3, 1769 and of Mercury at Mercury Bay on Coromandel Peninsula in New Zealand on 9 November 1769.

Discover delightful details. See Captain Cook and the arched rock of Mercury Bay. See the path of Venus on an antique map of Tahiti. Admire a planetarium and orrery from the period (an orrery is a clockwork model of the solar system).
