April 2nd

Panstarrs is fading fast, and even though it is in much darker sky now it is hard to locate.
This is a quick shot of 20 seconds on a fixed tripod from the bedroom window, so the stars and comet are trailed.
(Note M31 towards the top of the frame).

Supernova in M65.
2013am discovered 2013/03/21.638 by M. Sugano
Found in M65 at R.A. = 11h18m56s.93, Decl. = +13°03'49".3

This is 12 x 10 minutes in luminance of M65 and M66

  M65 in detail showing the supernova.

  Given location is
R.A. = 11h18m56s.93,
Decl. = +13°03'49".3

Measured values are:
R.A. = 11h18m56s.94
Decl. = +13°03'50".1

5th April
Some Ha added to the image of M82 taken in 2011.
A lot more of the red nebulosity shows up.

6th April
I have never gone beyond 10 minute exposures. I tried some 20 minute subs.
The DDM60 mount behaved flawlessly and I got 7 x 20 minutes.

16th April

C/2011 L4 comet Panstarrs
The comet is now circumpolar and whereas previously my house was in the way
preventing me from using the observatory scope, I now have a better view.
The neighbour's tree was a problem and this stack of seven 60 second images was taken through the branches.

Astrometry to determine the position:

C/2011 L4 comet Panstarrs
Very light polluted sky - even the bright stars in Cassiopeia were difficult to see.
I tried a few 5 minute exposures but there was trailing of the comet.
I set the DDM60 mount to track on the comet and this is the result of 4x10 minutes exposures:

April 30th
Latest check on ISON - it was not visible because it was superimposed over a star.

I was curious as to whether Panstarrs would show up in Ha or not. It did show up, but I did not expect the nebulosity to the right.
3x 10 minutes in Ha, tracking on stars.

The comet is close to ngc7822.
