Images of the site of explosion of SN 2005cs between June 26th and 28th, 2005, taken by M. Fiedler with his 0.35-m Telescope. The first unfiltered image (top-left, resulting from the combination of 10 individual images of 600s each) was obtained on June 26 at an average UT=22.3, which is near the expected time of the shock breakout. The other B band images, obtained during the subsequent 2 days, show the rapid brightening of SN 2005cs.
