Stan's June thread has spilled over somewhat into July, Dave also has an M85 thread underway. We were somewhat unlucky in getting 3 bright supernovae poorly positioned in the west leading into July. This led to frenzied attempts to observe before targets dived too low in the bright twilight sky. Some of us have soldiered through using smaller scopes to catch glimpses between trees. I resorted to an 80mm to catch one...that's what happens when you are set up in what was historically a sequoia grove (all cut long ago...but still plenty of other tall trees at present...although the drought has thinned them significantly.)
Looking for newer stuff, I ended up targeting the opposite end of the brightness spectrum last night: SN 2020npb in UGC 11088 in Hercules. This one supposedly was around peak on 7/6 at 17.3 magnitude. I didn't expect to be successful with the 20", yet I found it to be straightforward, despite being very dim. I was having some decent seeing in this part of the sky and superb transparency in this quadrant--both were allowing me to go deep. The SN actually seemed a little brighter than a 17.1 mag field star preceding it, which was readily seen. Both could be held/locked in AV. The 16.3 B mag galaxy was unmistakable, along with its general structure/orientation and semi-stellar core. The SN very slightly precedes the brighter central major axis (which is one of the two arms of this barred spiral.) Unexpected successes like this are always satisfying. I tracked down a couple of other galaxies nearby to the south west that I had penciled into Uranometria...unfortunately I did not go deep enough because I was seeing at least one dimmer, and trying to pin it down, when I realized three of the targets I was after at the time were trailing it, and substantially brighter.
