Description

Actually I was out for catching some "easy" targets with my f5-Newton the last few clear nights (you may found one of the targets here). These white nights are not the best time of year to hunt for supernovae, but since I had one in sight in a host as beautiful as this one in Arp 297, I couldn't resist.

Of course it takes a lot more exposure time to bring out more and reduce the noise, but I managed to get both host and SN visible, even with my slower f/5 newt.

I estimate the SN at about mag 19 and NGC 5754 at about mag 13.5. Considering the circumstances, I'm glad to have captured the tidal stream at least a little ;-)

Hope you like the result!
