Nice image.
I did a Supernova search for many years.
this galaxy was one of the top on my list.
I haven't had a chance to observe the SN yet as it's been crap weather
since it's discovery here in Queensland.
Cheers

Thanks for sharing that pic Malcolm. It inspired me to go looking for the same thing last night (first cloud free night in Sydney for I don't know how long). It was really satisfying to christen my new cam with that galaxy, and even more satisfying to be able to share SN 2021 aefx with my daughter.

Just out of curiosity, can this be visually seen via a telescope? Or do you need a camera as it is too small/dim?

28 inch dob!

One can only dream...

How do you rate my chances from a more modest 8 inch SCT from suburban light-polluted Sydney....0.0001%?

Wow Barry - what a dream scope mate! I wonder if I'd be allowed to order one I managed to get this shot. It's from my first ever batch of astro photos using a dedicated camera from the other night. Lots to learn for me, and taken under Sydney suburban skies using a Celestron C9.25 / ASI533MC-Pro. It's definitely worth a try with your C8 Graman.
