My name is Talia Martin and I am in an Astrophotography Imaging class at Bridgewater State University with Dr. Martina Arndt. We are currently working on a project to gain experience in analyzing data, and in particular creating a light curve, Our goal is to get some images of the supernova SN 2014J in the galaxy M82 and we would greatly appreciate it if you could help us with this, We are hoping to get 10 images a night each night for two weeks (starting as soon as is convenient) using whatever telescope is available and whichever settings, such as exposure, you feel are appropriate.

I am aware that there is an observing campaign currently going on to make observations of SN 2014J and if we cannot get images through a remote telescope is there a way we could get recent images to use from that? Any help with this would be greatly appreciated as well.

Thank you so much,
Talia Martin
