In this Research Note we present a serendipitous discovery of the transient CGS2004A (AT2004iu) in an image collected by the Carnegie-Irvine Galaxy Survey of the Scd: galaxy NGC 1892, which we determine is most likely to have been a type IIP supernova.

Continuum Reverberation Mapping of the Accretion Disks in Two Seyfert 1 Galaxies
We present optical continuum lags for two Seyfert 1 galaxies, MCG+08-11-011 and NGC 2617, using monitoring data from a reverberation mapping campaign carried out in 2014. Our light curves span the

LOSS Revisited - I: Unraveling correlations between supernova rates and galaxy properties, as measured in a reanalysis of the Lick Observatory Supernova Search
Most types of supernovae (SNe) have yet to be connected with their progenitor stellar systems. Here, we reanalyze the 10-year SN sample collected during 1998–2008 by the Lick Observatory Supernova
SNaX: A Database of Supernova X-Ray Light Curves.
TLDR
The database includes the X-ray fluxes and luminosities of young SNe, from days to years after outburst, and an option to fit the decay of any given SN light curve with a power-law.
On the lack of X-ray bright Type IIP supernovae
Type IIP Supernovae (SNe) are expected to arise from Red Supergiant stars (RSGs). These stars have observed mass-loss rates that span more than two orders of magnitude, from $< 10^{-6}$ solar masses
AGN Activity in Nucleated Galaxies as Measured by Chandra
Motivated by theoretical expectations that nuclear star clusters (NSCs) in galactic centers may provide a favorable environment for supermassive black holes to form and/or efficiently grow, we set
Characterizing the V-band light-curves of hydrogen-rich type II supernovae
We present an analysis of the diversity of V-band light-curves of hydrogen-rich type II supernovae. Analyzing a sample of 116 supernovae, several magnitude measurements are defined, together with
LOSS Revisited. II. The Relative Rates of Different Types of Supernovae Vary between Low- and High-mass Galaxies
In Paper I of this series, we showed that the ratio between stripped-envelope (SE) supernova (SN) and Type II SN rates reveals a significant SE SN deficiency in galaxies with stellar masses ≲ 10 10 M
THE CARNEGIE-IRVINE GALAXY SURVEY. I. OVERVIEW AND ATLAS OF OPTICAL IMAGES
The Carnegie-Irvine Galaxy Survey (CGS) is a long-term program to investigate the photometric and spectroscopic properties of a statistically complete sample of 605 bright (BT < 12.9 mag), southern
Star Formation in H I-Selected Galaxies. I. Sample Characteristics
A sample of 69 galaxies with radial velocities of less than 2500 km s-1 was selected from the H I Parkes All-Sky Survey (HIPASS) and imaged in broadband B and R and narrowband Hα, to deduce details
Third Reference Catalogue of Bright Galaxies
This new, enlarged reference catalogue of bright galaxies in three volumes reflects the explosive growth of extragalactic astronomy over the last 15 years. With data on more than 23,000 galaxies, it

We present measurements of dust reddening using the colors of stars with spectra in the Sloan Digital Sky Survey. We measure reddening as the difference between the measured and predicted colors of a
