Supernova SN 2022prv in IC 1132 galaxy: a image – 20 Aug. 2022.
We observed the supernova SN 2022prv in the spiral galaxy IC 1132, as part of our supernova follow-up program: here it is our image.
The image above comes from the average of four, 180-second exposures, unfiltered, remotely taken with the “Elena” (PlaneWave 17″+Paramount ME+SBIG STL-6303E) robotic unit available as part of the Virtual Telescope Project. The supernova is indicated by an arrow in the upper left inset.
The host galaxy is IC 1132, located at about 200 millions of light years. As for the supernova, we estimated SN 2022prv as bright as mag. 15.5 (unfiltered, R-mags for the reference stars from the Gaia DR2 star catalogue). This transient was discovered on 27 July 2022 by Panstarss survey and it is a type II supernova.
