Taken on 18th April 2009 - this Hyperstar III image shows the supernova in NGC 4008 (Ursa Major). NGC 4008 is the galaxy in the centre of the field of view and the supernova is what appears to be the bright nucleus. This is 28 subs at 200-seconds per sub. Apologies for the bling in the colour version - got a bit carried away.
Check out all the background galaxies in the black and white version.
