Here is a 500sec stacked V-band finding chart from TMO61. Image size is 2.5x2.5 arcmin, with north up and east left. The seeing is approximately one arcsec. You can see a faint companion to the east that will become more important as the nova fades, but in general, the nova has nothing bright near it and so aperture photometry works fine. This chart was taken on October 18 UT.
