Home Forums Deep Sky Bright supernova in NGC 3941 Visual observation this morning

Yes, thanks to Owen’s alert I got a visual on it this morning with my driven 24″ Dobsonian and managed a sketch. I had to go up to an 8mm Ethos e/p (x340) to seperate the SN from the core. I found the SN to be brighter than the core. I didn’t see as much of the outer halo as you captured in your image Nick. Skies were excellent with SQM readings of 21.44 in direction of target and a NELM of 5.8 to my old eyes. Seeing about ant III.
