M82 SuperNova Real-Time video thru IIE (city) new
      #6336090 - 01/26/14 05:59 AM Attachment (28 downloads)

The clouds finally cleared out so I made an attempt within the Los Angeles confines of severe light pollution.

Got a reasonable take of this supernova. Actually in a Gen 3 image intensifier, this SN is quite bright.

M82 Super Nova Real-Time video link.

Equipment used: Mewlon 250 scope @ f9.2, LP695 long pass IR filter (to cut sky glow), Panasonic GH3 camera.

Here's a 0.625 sec still:

Your exposure is more correct
my f4 1 sec was a little to much
but I was in to much pain to operate
small buttons on camera

Fantastic photo. Best I've seen and the first that's inspiring me to brave the very cold, below zero temps, to get out to observe it.

Very nice! Now if it would only clear up and not be quite so cold here...I would like to view this puppy before it fades.
