Comet C/2017 T2 just below NGC 957 and approaching the double cluster (NGC 884/869).  Having failed to remember to rotate the camera to the 'landscape' orientation, this is a mosaic of 2 separate 'portrait' images, both 20 x 180s.

Comments

On my personal page I have posted my image from the 24th, showing the comet's movement over the time difference. Nice shot!
