I have made recent observations of V745 Sco in the I band. Preliminary values:

2014 Feb 1.1  13.98 CCD-I
2014 Feb 3.1  13.78 CCD-I

Note that these were typical Ic values for the previous season (range 13.5-14.2). 

If in outburst, it must have started after 3.1 Feb 2014.

I'll surely follow this up tonight.
