 SN2012fr in NGC 1365 (PSN J03333599-3607377)

R.A. = 03h33m36.1s, Decl. = -3607'34" (equinox J2000.0) - Type Ia (see CBET No. 3275)
Discovered by A. Klotz (Institut de Recherche en Astrophysique et Planetologie, France) at R mag about 15.6 +/- 0.3 on 2012 Oct. 27.05
using public images of the 0.25m robotic telescope TAROT La Silla observatory, Chile.
Discovery images here



Image from the LISA spectrograph guidance camera (Atik314L, stack of 2x 60 sec. exposure) and of the 2D spectrum (stack of 14 x 300 sec. exposure - Atik460EC CCD camera).
Observation is complex from Castanet-Tolosan observatory (south of France) because the maximum elevation above the horizon is only 7.
Also, the artificial light pollution is severe from the observatory and the date correspond to full moon period (see conditions here).
