Yes - it would appear to be about the same as the other the star in the triangle - both notably fainter than the 9.1 star.

Thanks for posting- I have had serious cloud problems but even when it was clear I really struggled. I put it down to my lack of experience but will try again tonight, fingers crossed!

Apologies if this has been posted before, but a rather nice vid on how to find the supernova

Clear skies! :(

chrisp, thanks for posting a link here to my video, and the kind words about it. I hope it has proved helpful to those looking to find the supernova.

Cheers!

SN2011fe remains approx mag 10.2 - 10.3. It's not too late to see the 24 million year old stellar explosion.
