Has anybody seen this nova yet? I spent a few hours looking for it last night from Skelly and took some wide angle photos with a 'normal' digital camera of area. I SHOULD be able to see it at 6th mag can't claim I have.

I have not seen it yet but will have a go this week moon and clouds permitting. Will certainly need binoculars if Mag 6. Hope to see it at Binbrook Star Party next week if still brightish. Apparently some novae can last a few days, weeks or months even.

Imaged it this evening before the cloud rolled in ...

This was easily visible (on the camera) well before dark - rather bright. Note the filter flare! Quite green in colour


190mm Maksutov Newtonian
QHY IMG2Pro
Astronomik RG&B filters

14 x 30 seconds each RGB

Really this is a bit over exposed - its really rather bright!

Found it easily in the centre of the field of view whilst testing my GOTO mount. This was in a blue sky with the 130mm reflector. By far the brightest object in the field.
