The current target list for the Supernova Search consists of 10 galaxies situated close to the North Celestial Pole. They are all spiral galaxies between magnitude 6 and 12.

Targets yet to be imaged (a subset of the current list above)
The process is fairly simple - imaging participants image each of the 10 targets. These images are then taken by the 'blinkers' who, after checking its the right galaxy, compare the images to a previous image. If there is 'new' object in the vicinity of the galaxy, the blinker will notify the imagers to take a confirmation image. If the confirmation image shows that the image does indeed contain a new object, it will be reported as a possible supernova to the International Astronomical Union.
Each target will require an exposure of 30 to 120 seconds, depending on the equipment used. Images should be calibrated (dark and/or flat subtracted) but NOT processed in any other way.
