OGLE nova list

OGLE released their Magellanic Clouds nova list - 11 novae in the LMC and 7 in the SMC, detected between 2001–2013:

They are mostly very faint, but LMCN 2012-03a is at 18 mag in quiescence, and it looks quite flat! I am intrigued by OGLE-MBR133.25.1160 (figure 2) -- it ic characterized as a nova-like, but it seems to be a dwarf nova...

Best wishes - clear skies,

Stella.
