Comet Brewington C/154P 
December 27, 2013

 This faint 11th magnitude object rides high in the evening sky inside the Great Square of Pegasus. It is moving slowly against the background stars, and is in a field of faint galaxies. The two seen here are 15th magnitude, and the limiting magnitude is around 19 because of the poor seeing. (normally its 20.5 in an hour exposure)

This is an LRGB with the L data spanning about 45 minutes. The comet shows a nice teal color.
