Originally titled "I have lots R and" and posted to the Observations & Campaign Reports under the thread "New Bright Nova in SGR: PNV J18202726-2744263" = Nova Sgr 2012 No. 4. Moved here and retitled to remove confusion and to place in the most appropriate forum.

I have a lot of R and I data taken from the time of outburst on this nova.  I'd like to be able to calibrate it.  The fields are flattened and bias-corrected.  So, all I'm missing to transform it out of differential photometry are some standards.

Its V5592 Sgr

Might be nice for someone to rename this thread. My initial read, I thought a new nova was found now!

I saw this header crop up on the main page and thought the same thing!  Time for a new thread.

It was realy misleading

I was also misled yesterday when received an email about this "new nova". Already started to write an email to the [mira] list of HAA/VSS then noticed that this nova was discovered last year.

Maybe not to rename this thread but at least to move this new post to another forum branch since this is not a time sensitive alert...

Clear skies,
