Quote:Tobyus, your pic doesn't seem to show the supernova.
Quote:I just came in from observing it. 30's outside, but it was so worth it. It's bright! When I slewed to it, I spotted the galaxy by the supernova, before even seeing the gray fuzzy. No averted vision needed, at least not in an 8" SCT.

Quote:That's good news for those who have clear skies in January. No chance for anyone in the Northeast to see this.
First and foremost observing love: naked eye.
Last but not least, telescopes.
And I sometimes dabble with cameras.
