Magnitude 20.3 comet 227P Catalina-Linear is surrounded by 5 asteroids all between magnitudes 18.9 to 19.9. All 6 objects are basically moving in the same direction through the field of stars. The upper right inset attempts to show the comet a little better and the lower right inset is a single image showing how faint the comet really is among the stars.
