Hi RLTYS, is there an estimate as to what will be the brightest magnitude/when will it be reached?
I don't think there is any way to know how bright SN 2012A will become. We'll just have to wait and see.

Great images everyone, I hope to see this new supernovae as soon as I possibly can, given that the weather permits it. I've had complete overcast the past few weeks. It only adds to the eagerness to get out and do some much-needed and valuable observing time.
Clear skies,and I hope to see more images following the progression of this event in the future,

The last post in my blog (below) deals with my recent visual observation of this SN (and the one in M95). It is curious that we have two SNs now in the same galaxy group. Although it is a sizable group, I think there are only a dozen decently sized galaxies there at best, so statistically the simultaneity it is still remarkable.
