Processed from BVRH-alpha RCT exposures taken in March, 2014. M63 is a well known LINER and there is some debate about the nature of the bright central source.
The above image was processed from 4 individual frames in B, V, R and H-alpha selected from among those taken in the ongoing monitoring of SN 2014J. The supernova can just be seen against the galaxy background below and to the right of the center of M82. Click on the image to see an enlarged view.
