NGC 5177 with SN2010cr: Distant spiral galaxy in the constellation Virgo. This time with a supernova indicated with the marks. There are lots of galaxies in this direction, most associated with the Virgo Cluster.
Right Ascension: 13h 29m 24s
Declination: 11° 47' 49"
Date: May 2010
Telescope: Meade 16" Schmidt Cassegrain with f6.3 reducer
Camera: SBIG ST-10XE
Guiding: Meade 5" refractor/DSI Pro/PHD
Exposure: V filter: 3x5minutes.
Processing Notes: The camera was at -30°C. Data acquisition with CCDSoft. Reduced and aligned in CCDStack. Subs combined in Sigma Beta. Arcsine stretch import of V into Photoshop. Adjusted curves and levels. Slight blur on the dim areas and sharpening on bright areas. Marks added showing location of the supernova.

Additional Comments: This supernova showed up on the list near where I had planned to image. So I grabbed three subframes to see how it turned out and what the field was like. Looks like the tracking had not stabilized fully, but that might be expected with only 3 subframes.
