The first picture is UGC 1626 taken by a friend long ago. The second is mine. This is a faint galaxy that needs more time to image than I gave it. However, put these two images side by side and you will be able to detect something extra - a possible supernova.
Two top lines point to the same two stars above the galaxy, the bottom line points to the nucleus of the dim galaxy, but the two arrows embrace the extra object that has recently appeared.
"PSN J02082141+4129123" was discovered on September 21, 2011 by F. Ciabattari and E. Mazzoni, both of the Italian Supernovae Search Project. The object is 2" west and 26" north of the center of UGC 1626. The magnitude is 15.9.
