imaged SN 2017eaw (Halifax)

It's been over 2 months since I received an image off the supernova SN 2017 eaw within the Fireworks galaxy. The BGO gathered some data last night. The exploded star is almost invisible now.

Fireworks galaxy, supernova barely visible

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

It is dimmer than the nearby star J203443.9+601103 which is magnitude 17.6.
