It´s Dark Outside

The last two days here in Jordbro, JO99bd, have been like summer days. But one cannot ignore that autumn is here and has arrived with yellow and red leaves. And the evenings are very dark outside. I live in a light polluted urban area, but sometimes the sky is full of visible stars. So it was tonight. With my birding spotting tube I could see the stripes on Jupiter, as well as some of its moons. The photo above was shot with a Sony NEX-5 with its zoom lens in the 18 mm position. The antenna is an old Diamond 5 band trap vertical for 80-10 m. Click on the photo for a better view.
