Image Details:

Yesterday was cloudy, and storms are predicted; but tonight was very clear! Using a tripod I used manual focus, and set the timer to release the shutter after ten seconds, to minimize any movement. One full second exposure on automatic. Full telephoto (43X, 1000mm).

PLEASE NOTE: I uploaded another (similar, but different) photo earlier tonight, in which I incorrectly said the camera was a Nikon P500; it was actually a Nikon P510. I also neglected to add the 1000mm lens (43X) power.
