How long did I have to wait to finally go on the hunt for supernovae again.
After 6 weeks of continuous clouds here it was finally time again.
Of course I chose a nice, bright example, which is now visible in the south.
And although the SN was already discovered in early October it is still quite bright. Much brighter than I expected.

Even though the host galaxy doesn't give much, the SN is a worthwhile target even for small optics.

Unfortunately it was only time for 37 subs due to upcoming fog.
The image is a strong crop.
