Photgraphed here at Mag 10.75 just before the peak.....Looks like it will top out around 10.2 - 10.3.
Sorry that should have read 10.57
Peter, that's a very nice image. What are the particulars about the exposure, camera, and telescope?

Hi, its a 20 inch Planewave with a FLI PL11002M Class 1 and just RGB with 3x 180 sec subs in each channel.
Its a little dull as I didn't want to push the image processing too hard, if I had gone a little deeper I might have got the brightness up a little.....I was mainly going for quality of Star colors.
Amazing. The sheer power of a single star exploding rivals that of the galaxy.
