Comet 103P/Hartley near NGC 1664

Comet 103P Hartley near NGC 1664 (top Left) Berk15 (bottom below comet) and epsilon Aurigae (brightest star). Click to embiggen for open cluster goodness.

The comet appears as multiple images as this is a stack of 3 x 60 second exposures in Global Rent a Scope GRAS 14 and stacked in Image J using Z projection of maximum intensity and a bit of contrast fiddling.

Here's a false colour animation I made from those stacked images
