A fresh image of comet 46P/Wirtanen, under poor skies and only a handful of frames. Very cold, -12 Celsius, with ice forming on the entire setup. Very poor seeing. The comet’s coma is elongated, but no tail is discernible. Some rather small galaxies are visible in the background. The coma is 20 to 30 arcminutes in diameter in this image.
