A Supernova in the Galaxy NGC 4666

NGC 4666 and ASASSN-14LP, a galaxy harboring a supernova – December 21, 2014

Object Name (NGC 4666 and ASASSN-14LP)
Object Type (Galaxy and Supernova)
Location (Observatoire Astronomique de Bauduen – Provence France)
Date (2014 12 21)
Media (graphite pencil, white paper, just rapid usage of Paint.net to invert the B&W)

Here’s the sketch I made while looking at this galaxy. The mag. estimation I did is far better than expected : 11.2.
A target easy to find because the galaxy NGC 4666 is quite big and very close to gamma Virgo with a confortable magnitude, but the SN is very close to the galactic centrum, only 12 sec of arc!!, so to separate the two lights the use of the 24″ helps a lot.

SN 2014J in M82

Galaxy M 82 with Supernova SN2014J on February 4, 2014
Galaxy M 82 with Supernova SN2014J on February 4, 2014

Hello,

Two and a half hours of clear sky at 04.Februar 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.

At last I caught the supernova in M99, I made this sketch using the 505mm mirror and Watec 120n+ video camera on Thursday 27th Feb.

The Brightest Supernova in My Life

Messier 82 and SN2014J - January 31, 2014
Messier 82 and SN2014J – January 31, 2014

I saw SN2014J in M82 on Korean New Year night.

It is very surprise event to me, since I’ve never seen bright supernova.

Already I saw some supernovas in 2011. (M51, M101, NGC2655)

But that is more dark than this one.

I feel some futility.. because it is too easy to observing 🙂

I drew a sketch with 10″ dob, black paper and white pastel & jelly pen.

And I compared with my previous M82 sketch.

It is so interesting, I want to share everyone!

SN 2014J in M82 - February 2, 2014
SN 2014J in M82 – February 2, 2014

Object Name (SN 2014J in M82)
Object Type (Supernova in galaxy)
Location (Provence – France)
Date (Feb 2nd 2014)
Media (graphite pencil, watercolour on white paper)

Hello sketchers, here is my contribution to the observation of SN 2014J.

From Jan. 23rd till Feb. 11th I spend a lot of good time with the M82 supernova. Sketching the galaxy, estimate the visual magnitude and made watercolour of the sceneries.
Sometime I observed with friends and their materials, sometime I’m alone on the middle of no where, between the Provencal wild nature and the dark sky. Here in south France the temperature is quite high for the season but wind blows, so, often I place my car to protect the 12” Dobson from the mistral.
Attached is a kind of “auto portrait” (yes, that’s me!), from a photo I take tonight. On the basis I add the AAVSO curve with my own visual observations (blue cross is DMIB).

The technique used is inverted watercolour, so I invert the colours of the sketch while scanning. For the galaxy this is common sketch black on white – inverted.

Thanks to read this, clear sky to you all !
Michel
