Seriously?  17 years on CN, over 5,000 posts, and  "...,i had no idea..."

 

You're being facetious, correct?

I am sorry..i just missed it...confused1.gif

 

lately i am just occupied with AP , reading, learning...taking a lot of pictures because for some crazy reason we had alot of clear nights lately..etc etc etc

 

But then again if everybody knew here on CN at least, why has anybody post a picture?

It is not that difficult..

Or did i miss that toogrin.gif

It has been posted a couple times, which is how I discovered it and ultimately managed to image it; but if you think about it, you independently discovered and imaged a supernova!!!

That’s the kind of “discovery” that makes this such a cool pastime.
