The Nordic Optical Telescope (NOT) Unbiased Transient Survey (NUTS; ATel #8992) reports the spectroscopic classification of SN2017isq (ATLAS17nmh) in NGC 5018. The supernova was discovered by the ATLAS survey (Tonry et al. 2011, PASP, 123, 58)

The observation was performed with the 2.56 m Nordic Optical Telescope equipped with ALFOSC (range 350-950 nm; resolution 1.6 nm FWHM).

 
Survey Name  | IAU Name   | Discovery (UT)| Discovery mag | Observation (UT) | Redshift | Type | Phase    | Notes  
ATLAS17nmh   | SN2017isq  | 2017-12-04.6  | 15.3          | 2017-12-07.2     | 0.009    | Ia   | +1 month | (1)  

(1) SN2017isq is located approximately 30 kpc from its host galaxy.

Classification was performed using the GELATO (Harutyunyan et al. 2008, A&A, 488, 383) and SNID (Blondin and Tonry 2007, ApJ, 666, 1024) tools. Calibrated spectra and additional information can be retrieved in the IAU Transient Name Server.
