John has kindly informed me that a new supernova was discovered in M 51 on June 2nd. It would be pleasing to get an image of it. However the weather forecast is looking unfavourable and M 51 is around the meridian by the time the sky is dark enough for photography so the chances of a decent quality result with my system aren't good. If the opportunity for an attempt arises it won't be for lack of trying!
