2. April 2013: Supernova in M65


Markus Breidenich



During my stay in the Eifel I had the chance to take a small image of the leo triplet on 2 April (7 pictures of approx 2 minutes each with my Skywatcher 10" Newton, "manual" guiding, flats). Surprisingly, there was a supernova in M65 which was detected on 21 March 2013 and which is visible in the image. The SN has abrightness of about 16 mag.
