Description

Comet 46/P Wirtanen as seen from my back yard in central Pennsylvania, USA on 12/13/18. After stacking the frames in DeepSkyStacker, I processed two copies in Photoshop. One copy contained just the comet (stars removed) and the other copy contained the stars only. I then combined the two into the final image.
