This was a follow up nearly 48 hours later than my previous posted image.  There was hazy cloud around interfering a little with the images but I managed to capture a slightly longer set and this time at 180seconds rather than 120seconds per image.  It has made the stars seem slightly larger and made it more obvious that the SN is located in  NGC 514.   To my eyes it looks about the same relative brightness but I leave that to those who can measure these things accurately!
