Fantastic. It may be in a sufficiently faint region of the galaxy to be visually detectable even now. I will, however, wait for moonless nights in April to try to see it together with the structure in the galaxy.

EDIT: Comparing the SN photos with my composite sketch from last year, the SN should be on the periphery of the halo visible in a range of magnifications:

Thanks for the heads-up! I'll start looking after this Easter moon starts to fade.

Yes, thanks for posting info. Sky is finally starting to
show some clearing after months of clouds and rain. I hope
to image this one soon.

Interesting stuff, hope I get a chance to try for it before it fades...

Plan on trying Thursday. The weather is predicted to be possible as well as the Moon will be out of the way long enough for it to get dark.

It's right in the dust lane of the galaxy so will be reddened and probably tougher than it looks. Think I'll setup the 20".

Just took this image of M65 with SN 2013AM. I'd estimate the SN's mag at 16.6.

Is it possible SN20213AM is heavily obscured by interstellar dust, and therefore looks dimmer than it actually is? Or will it take a period of weeks for it to become bright enough to see in smaller telescopes and or light polluted areas?

It's possible as my color image does show the SN as a reddish color. As for your second question only time will tell.

I have also imaged it in both Luminosity and Red. The supernova does seem to be brighter in Red. I estimated it as 16.7 with the luminosity filter and 16.2 with the Red filter. I was using a SBIG STF-8300m camera with Baader filters. Bottom line is this remains a very tough target visually. Images are here:

SN 2013am with Red Filter

First clear evening tonight after dusk [for an hour!] since SN announced - my 30sec enough to record it - who needs hours. Here's a slightly deeper image

Nice shot, clearly shows the SN. I'll be visually looking for one clear night of the next new moon. Thanks, Steve

Great news. I hope it gets up to at least mag 13, so I can get a look at it.

Yeah, if there is any brightening to this point, it is absolutely minimal and fading is a distinct possibility. This one isn't acting like it is "supposed" to. Apparently someone forgot to give it the memo.

Yep, It was mag. 15.6 on 3/21 and mag. 16.2 on 3/22, now you are saying it is in the mid 16th mag. range. I do not think it will become visible in any of my telescopes. I hope that these are wrong and it brightens up enough to be seen.
