Hi All,
       I have closely studied Rob’s image. The image of LMC V1341 (if real) is very faint, but a position can be determined.  Relative to UCAC3 stars, it is
(J2000)  05 09 56.82 +/- 1.0s   -71 39 55.1 +/- 0.5”  
       This is consistent with the position of previous outbursts.

I imaged the field of this recurrent nova tonight and there seems to be a
faint star at the position, as far as I can tell given the scale.  Could
someone have a look?  Unfortunately it's not far above the noise level of
my image - however it is faintly visible in each of the subs I took (7 x 30
sec).  MPChecker revealed nothing near the position. Here is the link:


In the green channel it would be around mag 14.5 (~V).  There was nothing
visible there last night in an image to the same depth.

Thanks - hope it's not a false alarm.
