On March 10 a Type la supernova was discovered in NGC5643 in the constellation Lupus. Back then it was at magnitude 16 but has brightened to around mag 11 now , might be worth a look :].

I was hoping to have a decent crack at imaging the galaxy and supernova on Sunday night but suspect cloud and wind deterred me but managed to use a planetary cam  in Sharpcaps live stack

to check it. The live image was pretty impressive with the SN easily seen, attached a pic although the live view was a lot smoother.NGC-5643-supernova (Copy).jpg

Wow mate, excellent catch. I haven't used that software. Are you saying that is just a live screen grab?

Thanks Ray, Shane.........yes Ray you can save the image but I found I had to experiment with stack and exposure length to avoid alignment problems with the saved image. The live stacking seemed to have no worries and looked great. Think the image attached is 15x10 sec frames combined
