Supernova at M95

At coordinates R.A. = 10h 43m 53s, Decl. = +11º 40′ 17″ and magnitude around 13 yesterday I could spot and record with DSLR camera the M95 supernova. This picture was taken through a 300mm telephoto lens on an EQ6 equatorial mount w/o autoguider.

The field was illuminated by a near bright planet, Mars, that became quite useful to locate the event in the sky.
