I wonder if New Horizons has a window-sill?!

Three Christmas stars in the East!
Jupiter has now joined the pre-dawn party!
Another tiny new spot in Ha.
Mercury very obvious in this morning’s pre-dawn sky from the window-sill.
Wide pictures with Canon SX610HS.
Planet insets with 80mm f/5 refractor +_ 2X X2 barlows + PD camera.
Did manage to find and image Comet 46P/Wirtanen this time, despite the sky clarity being poor!
Again, nice prominences today. And a couple of spots in Ha.
