Following the posting on the Central Bureau's Transient Object
Confirmation Page about a possible Nova in Cen (TOCP Designation: PNV
J13544700-5909080) we performed some follow-up of this object remotely
through the 0.50-m f/6.8 astrograph + CCD + focal reducer of
iTelescope network (MPC Code  Q62 - Siding Spring, AU).

For more info, image and animation:


On our images taken on December 03.68, 2013 we can confirm the
presence of an optical counterpart with unfiltered CCD magnitude ~ 5.0
at coordinates:

R.A. = 13 54 45.22, Decl.= -59 09 04.5

(equinox 2000.0; UCAC-3 catalogue reference stars).

According to Vizier the nearest star (located at 1.538 arcsecond from
the transient) to this position in the USNO-B1.0 catalogue  is:

USNO-B1.0  0308-0442031   (J2000) 13 54 45.374 -59 09 03.52    mag.
B2=15.52 R2 =15.12
