The position of SN is R.A. = 15h13m35s.73, Decl. = # -20o40'38".5 (2000.0), which is about 68" east and 7" south of the # nucleus (it has complex structure) of ESO 581-G25. It is located at # well outside of the main disk. There are several foreground stars # around this galaxy, including a bright (mag 15:) star superimposed # on the western disk. The expected maximum for typical SN Ia is mag # about 14.5.
