V745 Sco

Posted by Gary Poyner at 11:05 on 2014 Feb 08

Just like to mention that the Recurrent Nova V745 Sco has been detected in outburst by Rod Stubbings in Australia. Current magnitude is ~10.0 visual. This is the first outburst in this system since 1989. A bit low for UK observers at -33 degrees perhaps, but in these days of remote scopes it might prove to be an interesting target for some!Martin Mobberley and Nick James have already imaged this NR remotely, and you can see their images and read about V745 Sco at www.britastro.org/vss/Gary
