Supernova SN 2014J - 30.1.2014 at 19.00 Imatra Observation number 22194

Visibility III / V

Rauno Päivinen, Etelä-Karjalan nova

A supernova exploded in Messier 82 galaxy in two different versions.

The first has an h-alpha channel included and the second does not.

I described this on two different nights in late January. From the first night, I only recovered the h-alpha channel. Seeing was unsuitable at the time and luminance images were allowed to be thrown in the trash due to poor sharpness. The second night I then collected luminance and color channels.

On the second night of shooting, I looked at this visually with a C14 before shooting, and that supernova stood out from there.
