Supernova SN 2014J - 25.2.2014 at 22.00 Imatra Observation number 22483

Visibility III / V

Rauno Päivinen, Etelä-Karjalan nova

The Supernova of the Messier 82 is still clearly visible and when the sky finally opened, this still had to be described. At the same time, I tried to take the Spectrum using the Star Analyzer lattice, but the result remained unpublishable, I have to try again later.

The first picture was taken with Atik's black and white star imaging camera and the second picture with the ASI 120MM planetary camera, which seems to work well in star photography as well.

Mielenkiintoinen havainto ! Kiitos erinomaisesta kuvasta. Saattaa olla arvioitava, onko kyseessä todellakin supernova. Olisiko selvitettävä, onko kuvassa näkyvä kohde itse kierteissumuun kuuluva kohde vaiko jokin sen edessä oleva suurempi tai meitä lähempänä oleva tähti ?

Onnittelut noin hyvästä valokuvasta ! Tilastollisesti supernovia havaittaneen deep sky - tarkkailussa noin yksi 500 vuodessa.
