Green comet and its accompanions

While the comet 21P Giacobini-Zinner slowly moves out of the center of the solar system, it is still quite pretty in the backyard telescopes. However, the best view can be gottten with sensitive camera. On this sky portrait from 20th September, 2018, the green comet with its tail surround deep-sky objects on the edge of the Gemini constellation. From left you can spot the open star cluster Messier 35, IC 443 „Jellyfish nebula“ or (the most prominent) NGC 2174 called „Monkey Head Nebula“. Also some structures of dark nebulae can be visible. Just (almost) all in one. Capured over Ustupky, Czech Republic, with Canon 6D Baader IR modified, Pentacon 135 mm, f2.8-5.6, 21x200s, ISO 1600, Vixen GP-2 mount.
