SN 2017eaw in  NGC6946 - GIF annimation based on images taken with the Bradford Robotic Telescope in 2015 and the Autonomous Robotic Telescope- PIRATE Telescope (Open University)  in August 2017. Did a rough 'shoes and socks off' calculation  based on visible light  - Magnitude 13.5 determination made on the 21st August and a distance of 22 million light years,  I reckoned that the Type 11P core collapse Supernova was about 150 million times more luminous than the Sun.:happy6:
