SUPERNOVAE 2005ed, 2005ee, 2005ef, 2005eg, 2005eh, 2005ei
     Six supernovae have been reported:  2005ed and 2005ef-2005ei
via J. Frieman on behalf of the "Sloan Digital Sky Survey II"
collaboration (J. Barentine et al.; astrometric and photometric
data appear on CBET 229), on g', r', and i' images taken on Sept. 9
with the SDSS 2.5-m telescope at Apache Point Observatory; and
2005ee via V. Lipunov on behalf of his group at the Sternberg
Astronomical Institute (cf. IAUC 8520) on unfiltered CCD MASTER
telescope images.  Lipunov writes that 2005ee is located at R.A. =
23h57m55s.83, Decl. = +32o38'08".9 (equinox 2000.0), or 3" west and
5" north of the center of PGC 73054.  Unfiltered CCD magnitudes for
2005ee:   Aug. 25.92 UT, 16.0 (Lipunov et al.); Sept. 1.921, 16.0
(Lipunov et al.); 23.26, 16.6 (J. McGaha, Tucson, AZ, 0.36-m
reflector); 24.02, 16.8 (T. Puckett, remotely with 0.20-m reflector
at Osyoss, BC).  Alternate measured position end figures for 2005ee:
55s.97, 14".1 (McGaha); 55s.88, 14".5 (Puckett).  McGaha and
Puckett each indicate that 2005ee is not present on Digitized Sky
Survey images.  Spectroscopy for the SDSS supernovae (each of which
was predicted to have peaked in the g'-magnitude range 18.9-20.5
prior to discovery) show four of them to be of type Ia and the
fifth (2005ei) a likely type-Ia supernova.


SUPERNOVA 2005cs IN NGC 5194 (M51)
      C. J. Stockdale and M. Kelley, Marquette University; S. D.
Van Dyk, Spitzer Science Center, California Institute of Technology;
R. A. Sramek, National Radio Astronomy Observatory; K. W. Weiler,
Naval Research Laboratory; and N. Panagia, European Space Agency,
report the lack of detection of radio emission near the position of
the type-II SN 2005cs (IAUC 8553, 8555) with the Very Large Array.
Upper limits (3 sigma) to any radio flux density were established
on the following dates:  July 2.01 UT, < 0.585 mJy at 22.460 GHz
(wavelength lambda = 1.3 cm); 3.00, < 0.900 mJy at 14.940 GHz
(lambda = 2.0 cm) and < 0.189 mJy at 8.460 GHz (lambda = 3.5 cm);
8.968, < 0.291 mJy at 8.460 GHz and < 0.918 mJy at 22.460 GHz;
22.038 < 0.161 mJy at 8.460 GHz and < 0.464 mJy at 22.460 GHz; Aug.
9.00, < 0.129 mJy at 8.460 GHz; 14.837, < 0.187 mJy at 8.460 GHz
and < 0.372 mJy at 4.860 GHz (lambda = 6.2 cm).  The search for
radio emission was conducted within about 10" of the published
optical position of SN 2005cs (R.A. = 13h29m52s.78, Decl. =
+47o10'35".7, equinox 2000.0; cf. IAUC 8553), and no radio
emission was detected near the supernova position exceeding three
times the map rms at any of the times or in any of the frequency
bands listed.
