Interesting. Might brighten considerably, although a type 1c is typically a magnitude fainter than a type 1a SN. It will have to reach at least mag 14.0 before I can spot it with my scope

They are all with the RACI finder orientation. Fingers crossed, Clear Outside still says the skies will clear tonight

I tried last night, got up at 3:45, to find a bright moon right next to it, combined with hazy cloud blotting out all but the very brightest stars. I went back to bed after putting the telescope back in its storage :(

Better luck next time, Michael. I did a quick SkySafari check for tonight earlier and spotted the moon nearby. Forecast looks promising for the weekend though. Hopefully it looks good for you too :)

I knew the moon would be close; it was the combination with hazy clouds that killed the chances of spotting it. Forecast quite dreadful here, alas. Good luck hunting it down

I also had a go at it this morning around 2-30ish. I got some  images of it at 100s.The moon and sky conditions were awful though.
