Congratulations Peter!
I'm having trouble keeping up with all the SNs The BOSS team are finding lately. Between you guys and Terry, what a HUGE inspiration you guys are for the everyday astronomer.

Backyard astronomers rock!

Thank you.
We know it is a type 1a supernova from the spectra taken at Las Campanas Observatory in Chile, so we are just waiting the official announcement and designation.
Weather so crap can't even look at my own discovery, was rather hoping to see it visually. Was good that Ron was able to get an eyeball as he does with just about all SN that get bright enough.
Hey Suzy, you, Terry, Greg, Colin, Pat, Brendan, Ron and I = QUEENSLANDER! and of course, Ice In Spacers!
Thanks again.

Peter

"Anyone care to see it visually? If so, you're seeing it as it occurred about 260 Million years ago"

So at this time there were reptiles on earth but not yet dinosaurs and mammals still about 60 million years away. And the map of the earth looked......rather different from today's map.

Cool to think about it in this way.

Again thanks for all your support of the BOSS team, we are proud to be members of Ice In Space and look forward to the next one.

Thanks again to those BOSS team.
For those interested here is a recent pic of us (minus Pat Pearl) at the very successful inaugural Australian Astro Imaging Conference (AAIC) held on the Gold Coast last July.

HI jjj, and everyone else who posted here.
I thought I'd provide an updated list of the discoveries by the BOSS team here, for anyone who may be interested.

It's interesting to see that since we presented the BOSS team last year in June at the Astroimaging conference on the Gold Coast, we have added 10 more discoveries in 7 months! Stu, as usual, contributed the lion's share with 7, with 2 from me, and 1 from Peter.

I must admit that back then, I really didn't think that we would have found 10 more, so as you can imagine, we are very happy with these results.

Also, we will be presenting more supernova search efforts at the upcoming NACAA XXV in Brisbane (http://www.nacaa.org.au/2012/about) so hopefully we will have a couple more by then..fingers crossed.

I imaged PGC8012 and SN2012U last night and after nearly 3 weeks since discovery it is still about as bright as at discovery so should still be a large aperture visual object. Would be interested to know if any picks up.
