Having spent much of my time recently on variable stars I just had to get an image of that extreme variable star, the supernova in NGC6946. This image consists of around two hours worth of 5 minute subs in luminance. I had to reject many more due to the background sky being too bright. I did attempt to get some colour but dawn came too quickly. Maybe another time.
