Here is a new transient that may be a nova.  It would be very helpful to get a spectrum or two and see what gives.  It has a current amplitude of around 7.5 mags, which is a little small for a nova, but reasonable for a WZ Sge star.  If you have a grating, you might get an image or two.  It is 9th magnitude at visual, but 8th magnitude in the red, so it should be an easy target.
