M82 SN2014J Supernova by RedXen M82 SN2014J Supernova by RedXen
Here's a quick 3 minute exposure of the recent supernova in the galaxy M82. While it might look like the rest of the stars in the image, it's really an explosion that is visible from roughly 12 million light-years away while the rest of the stars in the image are within our own galaxy and are only thousands of light-years away.

That's all of the telescope details. I do have my own equipment that I use (Orion 5" Refractor & 6" Reflector, Orion Skyview Pro Mount & Tripod, Canon T3i DSLR), but the skies over my home are overcast for the rest of the week and there's limited time to view the supernova before it fades away over the rest of the week. So I purchased some telescope time at an online observatory.

I didn't know that can buy time in the online observatories.. it`s interesting! I'm very fond of the cosmos, and accordingly, and all that is in it is hidden. Unfortunately, until'm not able to watch all this in a telescope, but I put a lot of effort to change the situation. That's why I am so interested in the experience of others who have already made significant progress in space exploration and its individual parts, as well as those who are doing excellent cosmic pictures. You have a great Astro-photo :) I Hope that someday I can make something like that :) I Wish you good luck in shooting nebulae, planets and galaxies :) This is incredibly beautiful!
