Just one mounth we started the astronomical search, and we have the first Supernova discovered by Montecatini val di Cecina astronomical association.
During the night of 13th october 2011 the survery for Supernova search with C14 telescope, Bellincioni Beta mount using DTA camera with Kodak KAF1000, Fabio Martinelli get an image of galaxy NGC 7485.
During the controll By Riccardo Mancini we discovered the SN of Magnitude 17.00

A. Dimai, Cortina d’Ampezzo, Italy, reports the discovery by
Fabio Martinelli, Riccardo Mancini and Fabio Briganti, on
behalf of Italian Supernovae Search Project, of an apparent
supernova (see PSN J23060280+3406367), on unfiltered CCD
images taken with the 0.35-m telescope of the Montecatini
Valdicecina Observatory (Pisa – Italy) on October 14.0299
(at mag about 18.0; limiting mag about 19.0) and 14.9319 UT
(mag about 17.6; limiting mag about
19.0). The new object is located at R.A. = 23h06m02s.80,
+34°06’36”.7 (equinox 2000.0), which is 22″ west and 8″
north of the
nucleus of NGC 7485. ISSP images of the same field taken on
2011 Oct. 01
(limiting mag about 19.5) shows nothing at this position,
nor do Palomar Sky Survey infrared, red, and blue plates.
A confirmation image, taken by A. Dimai with the
“Maioni” 0.28 m. telescope of the Col Drusciè
Observatory on October 15.9, shows the PSN at mag. +17.0 C.
We are glad to get this discovered.
