Possible nova at 17 58 08.48 -30 05 37.6 (J2000.0), for details see
Complete ASAS-SN Sky Patrol (Shappee et al. 2014ApJ...788...48S and Kochanek et al. 2017PASP..129j4502K) light curve and data (the brightening on 2019 April 2.262 UT is very likely not real):
The (likely) eruption began between 2020 July 10 and 15.
Spectroscopy, multiband photometry, and precise astrometry are urgently required.
Is there a name in the AAVSO database to report?
I observed a star in the position 17 58 08.48 -30 05 37.6 (J2000.0), with visual magnitude 10.6 in july 17 TU 03:25.
You can use either PNV J17580848-3005376 or N Sgr 2020 No. 3 for the name. There is no GCVS identification yet.
Thanks for your excellent obsevation and for submitting it to the AAVSO International Database so it can be used in studies of this nova!

Finder chart E or fainter for Nova Sgr 2020 n 3
I am trying to get a finder chart type E with fainter comparision stars for Nova Sgr 2020 n 3 but all appears are 11a. magnitude stars... Do exist a better chart?

Matching with the prior images, I noted it is more reddish now.
