Possible nova in Scorpius.


Abstract (from CDS):

Following posting on the CBAT unconfirmed-objects webpage, several other observers have sent observations of this apparent nova. Unfiltered CCD 300-s images (limiting mag 14.5) taken by D. Chekhovich, S. Korotkiy, and T. Kryachko with a Canon EOS 350D camera (+ 135-mm-f.l. f/4 lens) at Kazan State University's Astrotel Observatory (Karachay-Cherkessia, Russia) show the variable at mag 10.5 on Sept. 2.735 UT and mag 9.5 on Sept. 3.732. Nothing is visible at this position on images obtained on Aug. 30.783 (limiting mag 14.5). Astrometry obtained by the same observers from 10-s CCD images obtained on Sept. 3.72 with a 8.0-cm f/7.5 ED refractor (+ SBIG ST-2000XM camera) yields position end figures 32s.91, 10".3.
