    Default M106 on 16 May 14, No SN



    The night I captured this it was partly cloudy, the seeing was poor and the transparency was dismal at best. Why you ask would I even attempt to image, well with the complete lack of clear nights so far this year you have to take what you can get. I tried all my tricks on this image and was not even going to post it as I felt it was not up to par but then the SN was discovered and I figured what the hey. So here it is, three days before the discovery was known, the SN is there but I can't see it. I even tried a severe crop (see below) but alas, still nothing. Thanks for looking.

    Some of us wouldn't have to ask.. We know..
    Nice job in other than ideal conditions Scott...

    From what I've read, the SN is not bright, (something around vis mag 17 or so), as well as very close to
    the core. This makes it tough to grab under excellent conditions and high mag. Let alone anything less.

    The SN is beyond the reach of most amateur equipment, I think. It is in the core. Even the pros took over a month to notice it.

    Nice pic, Scott!
