Nova #4 in Sgr

Posted by Gary Poyner at 14:02 on 2012 Jul 08

The fourth Nova to be discovered in Sgr this year was announced on July 7. Brighter than the previous Nova mentioned in this forum, latest estimates are ~ mag 8.0. Further details along with an image taken by Martin Mobberely can be seen on the BAAVSS web pages.Gary

Good luck Paul. If anyone else images this or any other Nova (or VS come to that), and is able to perform photometry, please let the VSS have your results!Gary
