NOTES

1. Am currently only able to process and post approximately one quarter of the data I collect about supernovae. If anyone has a special interest in a particular supernova please contact me and I can either pass on the FITS files, or process and post, if these data are available

2. Comments are very much appreciated. Please can any comments be sent to my FLICKR mail address and I will respond to each personally.
