Two and a half hours of clear sky at 04.February 2014 were sufficient to hold the SN in M82 and take a long walk on the winter night sky.

After a tough cloud cover and then the mist had dissolved about 21:00 clock, I could start the observation with the TMB 115/805 Apo.

The supernova was a really great thing! Very bright and striking beamed the SN in the “cigar”. After a brief enjoyment, I started with the sketch!
Unfortunately, the review was only mediocre, so blurred finer structures of the galaxy almost. Nice to see was the interruption in M 82 and south two light specks.

  1. Uwe,

    Very fine sketch of the supernova.
    It is down to about 13th magnitude as of this
    date but still visible.

    Frank 🙂

  2. Uwe, since I haven’t been able to get out observing since the Supernova, it’s a real treat to view your sketch. It makes me feel like I’m at the eyepiece.
