Hi all

Obtained an image of SNHunt168 in MCG +5-22-20, close to NGC 2783, yesterday.

BUT

I looked at some Palomar, DSSII, SDSSII images, and could not find any hard evidence for a super nova at this location. Very strange, since it is now confirmed as a likely type 1c with spectroscopy. Atel 4772

I'm baffled by this one.

Any thoughts?

Hi Lars

The discovery image is here

By eye there is nothing obvious to see but the difference image shows a brightening of the galaxy core. Presumably the spectrum was also obtained by difference.

Cheers
Robin
