Caught early, this sn could reach mag 11.5 in the next few days - one for southerly observers.

Thanks for the info but unfortunately it never rises above the house and tree line in my neighborhood.

Still rising in brightness, managed to image it (poorly) a couple of nights ago, in a break from poor weather.

I'd also like to image this SN but the weather at the SLOOH Observatory has been terrible. :(
