received more SN data (Halifax)

I totally missed the activity at the BGO robotic observatory. Sound asleep at the time. (And I missed the email in the morning.)

I continue to ask for data on supernova SN2017eaw in the Fireworks Galaxy. It seems just as bright as before.

supernova in the Fireworks Galaxy

Luminance only, 60 seconds subexposures, 10 stacked shots. FITS Liberator, GIMP. North is up; left is east.

Rhonda asked me how far away the galaxy was. I guessed 20 million. Wikipedia has 22 million light-years.


I will add this to the data from 25 May.
