CzeV3217 20210318.4236   96C Yuji Nakamura

2021 03 18.4236 UT
Discovered by Yuji Nakamura, Kameyama, Mie, Japan, on four frames (15-s exp., limiting mag 12.0) taken by 135mm F4.0 lens + CCD. Nothing is visible at this location on the frames taken on 2021 Mar. 14.4253 UT (15-s exp., limiting mag 13.0) by same instrument. The object is located very close to a W UMa-type eclipsing variable star CzeV3217 (Mag. range 14.870 - 14.960 V, AAVSO VSX).

On March 17 at 03:36 UT I imaged rho Cas with a camera lens 1:2.8 f=50mm with 13second exposures. Faintest star visible on the images is 11.3mag on chart X26378XY. The Nova is not visible.

Brightening confirmed

2021 03 18.68353 UT
The transient is clearly visible on the images obtained with the 0.6m SAI Moscow State University telescope (Kislovodsk, Russia). The transient position 23:24:47.745 +61:11:14.82 +/-0.1" J2000 measured with respect to UCAC3 stars in the field coincides (0.12" distance) with that of CzeV3217. Preliminary photometry: 2459292.18353 9.58 B, 2459292.18381 9.27 V, 2459292.18400 8.78 Rc, assuming B=12.694, V=12.168, Rc=11.808 for the nearby comparison star 3UC 303-171085; the original images may be found at http://scan.sai.msu.ru/~kirx/img/PNVJ23244760+6111140/KGO600mm/ ---- N.

Still brightening: now aroung 8.0V

Nova Cas 2021 20210319.4949UT 7.97V FRF -- preliminary photometry based on my 30s CCD image made using a 25cm iTelescope.net reflector (T5) at Mayhill, New Mexico, US.

I made 2-2x30s BVI images + 2x2x10s BIV images. I hope can do proper photometry soon.

Clear skies,
