You've rendered a beautiful sketch of this galaxy and its supernova!
As the local area astronomy club here in Portland will host a large star party for the public, away from the city about 30 miles this Saturday night, you have alerted us to experiencing this most dynamic event while it takes place in our universe. I for one will be looking for it through a large Newtonian reflector.
Thanks for sharing and posting this,

Very nice sketch and capture of this bright supernova in U. Major's spiral NGC 4088. These supernova events are always worth a look. We always get to see the photos; it is even nicer to see a sketch. Thanks for posting.

Tremendous! Nicely captured stars and magnitudes and wonderful sketch of the galaxy itself and of SN2009dd. I want to capture this myself but lately I have begun thinking I live in Britain rather than the Great Basin.
