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

Well done Ron and thanks for your report.
You are the Mr supernova go-to obs man!
I would just love to see a nice easy SN in my scope, perhaps the recent one in Centaurus, but I will wait & see until you get another look at it under better conditions as to whether it's worth me having a try at it.
Meanwhile, the rain is here to stay right thru to the weekend at least.
