Comet 103P/Hartley near Cr62
Comet 103P Hartley near open cluster Cr62 (Image below, bottom Left) 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.
A chart of the region identifying objects in the image is next to it, the big rectangle is the grame of G14 (again, click to embiggen).
