I took advantage of the only clear night available near the peak of 46P/Wirtanen for this image. Unfortunaly it is not a very interesting comet with it's tail facing away from us. But it was a great opprotunity to work on my comet processing.

This image is made from 40, 60 second exposures captured unguided. All processing was done in PixInsight.
