    Interestingly, I likely saw it the other evening through the Z10 while doing an EP comparison, but mistook it for a foreground star. Kinda stumbled onto that one I guess.

    It's super clear right now and I have a good shot at Ursa Major right out of my front stoop. It's also 6°F and a little windy. Probably wont drag out the scope tonight.

    I just caught a few photons from it in the C8. It's not quite dark yet.

    Yup, no doubt about it. Judging from the dancing limb of Jupiter, the air is pretty roily tonight. I have a 40mm plossl in the C8, and the cigar is in the middle of the fov. The super-nova keeps flashing in the same place in averted vision, right where the photos say it is. I hope you guys get to see it. Witnessing the death of a star is on every astronomer's bucket list.

    Can't wait to see if it will get brighter over the next few nights. Here is a link to an image of J09554 I took earlier tonight at Spaceweather:

    Oh Yeah!!! Bode's Nebula is higher in the sky now, and the explosion is continuously visible in slightly averted vision.

    Yes, I observe in correct orientation, and that is exactly what I seeing now.

    Calloo Callay! Oh frabjus day!!
