Supernovae 2018gv and 2018pv,
15 February 2018
Supernovae may be observed with relatively modest instruments. The Astronomy Section, Rochester Academy of Science, maintains a list of active supernovae, enabling the objects to be easily found. Below are images of two of the brightest supernovae visible in February 2018.
Both images were captured on 15 February 2018 with a Celestron C8 and SBIG8300 camera. The images of 2018gv are shown (in the full image below, but not in the thumbnail) together with two professional images of the same field, for comparison.
SN2018gv in NGC2525.
SN2018pv in NGC3941.
