Quote:Great shot! Maurice, could you give it a go a F10 or higher magnification? Al
good job by some students that found it
Quote:I'm amazed that it wasn't spotted earlier. I was checking out a frame grabber on my Mallincam Hyper Plus / C8 on the 20th and took three 14 second frames of M82. The galaxy was right on my roofline and the images are pathetic but the SN stands out prominently. [/list]
If I have it almost a day before the discovery, someone must have captured it a few days earlier. It was already very bright on the 20th.

Quote:It would be nice if there were an automated compare in some of the more popular viewing software where one could compare earlier images of galaxies automatically. Even if they simply flashed images back and forth so that a person could do the compare using their innate pattern recognition that would help as well.
