Comet 141P Machholz plus fragment on Jan 14th

About this image

A highly stretched image of 141P Machholz and its faint fragment. I have labelled this 'B', which may or may not be correct, but it's the brightest fragment and corresponds to 'B' when using Guide with Gideon Van Buitenen's elements. I've also labelled galaxy PGC 1457 to avoid it being mistaken for another fragment!
