Congratulations to Ron on his latest SN discovery in NGC 3938 on May 25.969 at mag 17.6

Spectroscopy showed in to be a Type 1c SN.

NGC 3938 is face on spiral in Ursa Major. A lovely target for imaging.

Well done Ron!

And another

I was struck by how obvious the 17th mag SN was, despite being seen against the spiral arm.

Taken with a Starlight Trius 694 and an Altair 10" RC. 8x 60s exposures centred on 224139UT on 26th May 2017.
