About this image

A wide field image showing NGC3147 and its new supernova, SN2021hpr. This slightly sharper image also now shows the cataclysmic variable CP Dra as a very faint point of light and several smaller background galaxies.  The full field is 48 x 48 arc minutes with north up.

See my image from 12th April for more information.

Almost as nice as the other Galaxy/CV pairing of AL Com and M88.
