Jacques (C/2014 E2). The comet wasn't nearly as bright as it was in August, so it was hard to reduce the residual star trails, but this didn't come out too bad. There's a faint ion tail pointing up at 11:30. It's much more apparent in the version with the stars mostly removed (also attached). The bright star is Alpha Vulpecula, and the dark nebulae are a group of Lynd's Dark Nebula with various designations. North is to the right. 44/44/44/44 minutes LRGB, 8" f/3.8 Newt, QSI583wsg.
