Galaxy M81 and SN 1993 J

Sketch and Details by Per-Jonny Bremseth


I want to send you “M.81 and SN 1993 J”.
I was happy to see this “bright” supernova in a nearby galaxy.
The SN was at 10.5 mag. when I made this drawing 1. apr. 1993.
19.05-20.25 U.T..
I used my 20.3 cm. SCT. f/10. Magn.: 111x.
The FOV is 23 arcmin. , the sky was clean with top seeing and
with the objects very high (almost overhead)!.
I used waterbased crayons on black paper only.
Location: 6 km. north of Trondheim city in Norway.

Best wishes from “The grand prix winner” and

  1. Per-Jonny,

    Excellent sketch of M-81 and the supernova in that galaxy 16 years back. My daughter and I followed the brightness of this one for weeks those many years ago.

    Frank 🙂
