Additional Comments: The seeing was rather poor this evening, but since it had been a while since any clear dark nights were over Durango, I had to try imaging. The tracking was also less well controlled than other recent images. This is a "lucky" supernova, in that NGC7479 was imaged June 4 at the FLC observatory. http://www.fortlewis.edu/observatory/image_detail.asp?ID=43
