I did end up trying Friday night. I was using my 20" f/5. Transparency was OK but not great. Like someone else said earlier, galaxies just weren't popping. I was able to see the star that is near the nucleus of M65 but the SN was not to be seen. Still, it was worth the visit and I enjoyed the trio. This was one of the first set of galaxies I learned to find way way back in the day so a visit is always brings back a little bit of nostalgia.

On Friday night the seeing was supposed to be bad again but I noticed that from time to time I was actually able to see Airy disks. I was on M66 with my 16" and moved over to M65 to try for the SN at 225, 300, and 450x with ZAOIIs. Again no SN did I see, and not even the star W of the core which is comparable.

Saturday night with my 20" f 4.5 using Meade 14mm & 8.8mm 4000(163X & 260X) with average seeing, I spent ~ 20 minutes observing M 65. Like others, I could make out several superimposed stars on the galaxy but could not pull out the SN. Due to the seeing, 16 mag was the limit that night. It was fun trying anyway.

I also struck out on this one tonight; seeing was a bit soft and I don't think I was getting much deeper than mag 15 on point sources. There were two moments where I had a momentary flicker in averted vision at about 400X, but I don't put any credence in those. Fortunately, I had better luck with the SN in ngc 2554.

Here's the image of M65 and SN 2013am that I received yesterday from the Bradford Robotic Telescope. It's a 110 second exposure that was captured with the BRT's 14" f/11 Celestron SCT and FLI MicroLine camera.

Nice image Dave - when was it taken? I recorded it tonight Apr 11 and it seems to have faded from my pic of Apr 5. It was as bright as the star immediately west [right] of the gxy core. Bright Supernova latest pic Apr 8 and mag seems constantish Will post my pic tomorrow

Thanks Dave - your pic ~44hrs before mine from last night timed Apr 11 @ 21.01UT and I'm sure the SN has faded to ~m17.1 from my last pic of Apr 5 some 6 days ago - both in image below

Tonight's shot Apr 15 under very poor transparencey eg NELM 3.4. I suspect the SN had dropped below visual
