A couple of weeks after our first observation, we observed again supernova SN 2015G in NGC 6951, finding it fainter along its fadind trend.

The image above comes from the average of three, 300-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. 18.3 (R mags for the reference stars from UCAC-4), that is 1.6 mags fainter than  last 31 Mar.
