Spot the Comet

Today's Astronomy Picture of the Day is a bit of a puzzle. Can you spot Comet C/2016 R2 PanSTARRS? You probably could if this was a "naked eye" view through a low power/rich field telescope, but thanks to the light-gathering power of the digital camera used, the sky is almost "too busy" to find the comet. (Hint: examine the lower left corner!)
