    Supernova PSN J21431689+4334476 in UGC 11797: 7 July 2015

    The supernova PSN J21431689+4334476 in UGC 11797 was imaged as part of the Virtual Telescope’s supernova follow-up program.

    The image above comes from the average of three, 180-seconds exposures, unfiltered, remotely collected with the PlaneWave 17″+Paramount ME+SBIG STL-6303E robotic unit part of the Virtual Telescope Project. The supernova was estimated at mag. 17.6 (R mags for the reference stars from UCAC-4). Spectroscopy showed it is a young type Ia supernova.
