The possible supernova PSN J12060084+2036183 in NGC 4098 was imaged as part of the Virtual Telescope’s supernova follow-up program.

The image above comes from the average of three, 120-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. 17.8 (R mags for the reference stars from UCAC-4).

All around there are many other galaxies, making these images always worth a careful look.
