M82 supernova by cybermystic, on Flickr

Between thick cloud and rain there was actually a 3-hour slot of clear, dark, Moonless skies last night. No idea where that came from. But although conditions looked good to the eye, the seeing was actually pretty terrible. Maybe it was the high winds playing havoc? I have seen that before. Anyway - instead of a single 30-second sub that I got last time, last night I managed 15 x 4-minute subs on the M82 supernova. Not one of my best images, but at least I now have a decent record of the thing.

P.S. The small star almost directly below the supernova is mag 15.36 according to Guide 9.
