Supernova in PGC 8012

Just made a positive observation of Peter's Supernova. in PGC8012.
I as able to get a number of brief observations using a 6mm Radian 304xmag and a 9mm Nagler 200xmag .
Seeing was about 6-10 but in moments of reasonable seeing was able to get a positive view
There is a 7.2 mag star which has to be put out of the field of view to see the galaxy but with the narrow field of the radian was able to positively see the galaxy and Supernova.
Well done again Peter.
Cheers
