9 x 600s L, 3 x R , 5 x G and 5 x B. These images were automatically acquired during a night with mediocre skies. Still the result is not too bad... The supernova is the bright star at 5 o'clock seen from the core, at quite some distance from the core, not the three in a row, but the one below them! UGC10509 is the peculiar galaxy near the top of the image.
