Pretty cool time to be viewing as there are several visible supernovas right now...or maybe this is just normal??
In any case, there were a few previous posts regarding the SNs in M100 and IC1056

so I figured I would try to find them. I turns out they were easy. I have recently discovered how well my 178 MM camera works. I really like my 294 MC and that was my "go to" camera but the monochrome with smaller pixels seems to excel at these type of targets.
Stacked with SharpCap. Evo 8 + 178 MM + HyperStar
M100: 13.7 sec, gain 178, total time 3:39
IC1056: 11.3 sec, gain 213, total time 4:18
