Supernova SN 2024iss in the PGC 1846725 galaxy: 26 May 2024.

The image above comes from the average of five, 120-second exposures, unfiltered and unguided, remotely taken with the C14+Paramount ME+ST8-XME robotic unit available as part of the Virtual Telescope Project facility in Manciano, Italy, under very good sky conditions.

We estimated SN 2024iss as bright as mag. 12.5 (unfiltered, R-mags for the reference stars from the Gaia DR2 star catalogue), so this is the brightest value we recorded so far, since its explosion. It is a type II supernova, found at the early stages of its explosion.

We will track this transient as long as possible.
