We used two nights on the 3.6 m New Technology Telescope (NTT) at the European Southern Observatory, to obtain VRI photometry of three JFCs; 7P/Pons-Winnecke, 14P/Wolf and 92P/Sanguin. These were observed to be stellar in appearance. Description: Time series R-band photometry of comets 7P/Pons-Winnecke, 14P/Wolf and 92P/Sanguin obtained with the 3.6m NTT at ESO, Chile, on the 20th and 21st of January 2004. The comets were inactive at the time of observation. File Summary:
