Thanks for everyone.

I get more light for this last night. Now i was able to take 24m30s of light.

I have very limited time to image this because of trees near my observatory.

New try from 30.8.2011.

Total 35min, mainly 2min subs with moddedd Canon EOS1000D and TS250 f/5 Newton. No guiding.

Only 2 of subs was ok, all other somehow spoiled by clouds. Anyway, i stacked them all. Supernova is much brighter now.

Well done, that's a cracking image considering the full moon!

I hope that the SN is still there in 10 days or so as I'd like to take some images without the full moon.

This supernova is still clearly visible in images.

I took 1h40min images last night of M101 and found it. Must be quite of bang, i wonder how bright it would be if it happened in our galaxy

Celestron 14 SCT, CGEM, EOS600D and sw0.85 reducer.

25x4min ISO1600
