Comet C/2018 N2 (ASASSN) was discovered a year ago and will reach perihelion next month of November, but will not go much inside the Solar System and will not shine more higher than magnitude 11. In this image taken on July 12th, 2019 the comet is at magnitude 13, has not a very gassy appearance but is already showing a nice dust tail. The brightest star is at magnitude 7 highlighting also in upper part the spiral galaxy NGC 1024, the bigest, although at least fifty small galaxies can be seen in this field with only 37 square arcminutes.
