Magnitude 18 comet 343P is moving through a field of five NGC galaxies of magnitudes 13 to 16. Note NGC 7396 has a dust lane running through the middle of it. The inset has been adjusted to show the comet better. As usual it is hard to bring out details in the brighter galaxies and still show the faint moving comet in the same image.
