AAVSO Special Notice #106

Nova Sgr 2008 brightening
April 23, 2008

According to reports, Nova Sgr 2008 continues to brighten,
with the last measurements from Alexandre Amorim
indicating about V=6.5 on 20080423.0993.

Luckily, many AAVSO program stars are in Saggitarius,
and if you use a B-scale or larger field with VSP, you
will find many sequence stars from which to choose.
Keep watching this nova as it brightens; few professional
telescopes can observe this bright, while with a pair
of binoculars it is an easy target.  We will be uploading
a BVRI calibration in a few days, in plenty of time
to follow the decline.

You can report your data through Webobs with
Nova Sgr 2008
VSX J180558.8-271356
000-BFT-220
Any one of the three will work.  Good luck and clear skies!
