Supernova in galaxy M101

24. of August this year, Oxford university astronomers discovered a Supernova called SN2011fe, in the Pinnwheel galaxy M101 in Ursa Minor. See the circle marker in the photo taken in 17 Sept 2009. The Supernova has brightened day by day since its discovery, quite astonishing! As comparison I have added the last picture I have taken of the galaxy in April 2009.
AP1200 with C1100 at f10, guided with Williams Optics APO 110 with NexImage videocamera. 11 images of 10 min, ISO 3200, Canon 40D modified.
