Description

It's not one of my best images, I agree, but I just sold my trusted TS APO 102/715 Photoline telescope. So I was out of my well known night sky companion. But I still wanted to quickly catch this Supernova 2020jfo in Messier 61 before it faded away. So I put my Skywatcher Achromat 150/1200 on my astrophotography rig. Taking 30x30" unguided frames and the focus wasn't optimal as well. But, it's there nevertheless.
