DescriptionRecently there was a supernova in M82, the Cigar galaxy. Last 2 nights I could image this supernova together with the ‘sister’ galaxy of M82, which is M81, aka Bode’s galaxy. Michael van Doorn also made images of the same area with his Hyperstar including a lot of H-alpha data. Michael shared his data and I combined this with my own imagery.
