Well it seems this new supernova could be a "bust"
What may be happening is that this particular T1 supernova has a lot of "celestial" dust between the SN and the outer portions of M-65. In other words the light is being block or absorbed between this exploding star and us, decreasing the visible light output very significantly.
I may be able to see it with the 22", but not with the smaller 6" refractor or even the 8" refractor.
We'll keep an eye out for any change, but not looking promising to be a stand-out SN in such a nearby and wonderful galaxy.
