SN 2000el

According to IAUC 7523, T. Puckett and his colleagues has discovered a supernova in the neighbouring galaxy NGC 7290. The position is 1".5 east of the center of the spiral (SA(r)bc) galaxy NGC 7290. The magnitude at discovery (Nov. 21.03) was 175C. The expected maximum of the normal SN Ia is about mag 14.5 (vsnet-campaign-sn 111). SN 2000el was independently discovered by KAIT team, and it was revealed that this SN was first detected on October 23.1 and is of normal type II. The photometry is quite difficult because it is very close to the nucleus of the host galaxy (vsnet-campaign-sn 118).
