The Supernova SN2011dh in M51 the Whirlpool Galaxy

Here's the team which has been observing SN2011dh during June 2011. Zhuoni(Joy) Qian, Alice Koning, Russell Robb.

We just installed our camera on our new telescope the day of the first observations. We have not yet installed the filter wheel so all our observations are unfiltered. They will be close to the Cousings R filter but not identical. Beware that the observations will be self consistent but may be difficult to combine with other observations.

This our light curve showing how the brightness varies as a function of date.

This is one of our pictures of "The Whirlpool Galaxy" (M51) with the supernova circled in green.
