PSN J12060084+2036183 = SNhunt287. This transient was confirmed on 2015 04 26.153 on stack of 84 x 20-second unfiltered exposures with Celestron 0.28m f/5 SCT and Orion StarShoot Deep-Space Mononchrome Imager III. The transient measured 18.7 +/- 0.1 with V as reference. Comparison stars are from SDSS whose g and r data were used to determine V. Image: https://www.flickr.com/photos/watchingthesky/16652205183.

2015 04 26.349

This probable supernova in NGC 4098 was detected with 3 x 10 min images using a clear filter Photometry: Mag 18.88 +/- 0.67 C (V for ref; USNOA2) Astrometry: RA 12 06 00.85 Dec +20 36 18.0 These data were collected remotely by Joseph Brimacombe, Coral Towers Observatory, Cairns, Australia.

2015 04 28.94797

This transient was observed on 2015 04 28.94797 by G. Masi, remotely using the 17"-f/6.8 robotic unit part of the Virtual Telescope Project facility, at Bellatrix Astronomical Observatory in Ceccano, Italy. 120-seconds exposures, unfiltered, show the source at mag. 17.8 (R mags for the reference stars from UCAC-4). We also performed astrometry, getting the following end figures: 00.85; 17.8 (J2000.0, mean residuals of 0.1" on both axes).




2015 05 02.244

2015 05 02.244. Transient measured 17.6R +/- 0.4 under intense moonlight on 3 x 180-second filtered exposures with robotic telescope T21 (0.43-m f/6.8 astrograph + CCD + f/4.5 focal reducer) in Mayhill, NM. There is a correction on the time for my image on 2015 04 26 as it should be 2015 04 26.176 not 26.153. S. Howerton.
