I have posted the following report to CBAT and TOCP.
K. Ayani and S. Maeno, Bisei Astronomical Observatory (BAO), Ibara Okayama, Japan, obtained a low-resolution spectrogram (range 400-800 nm; resolution 0.5 nm atH-alpha) of TCP J17154683-3128303 on Mar. 27.8 UT with the BAO 1-m telescope. The spectrum shows broad emission lines of Balmer series, He I 501.6, 587.8, 706.5, and probably of O I 777.3. H-alpha line has FWHM of 7000 km/s and EW of about 90 nm. It indicates that the TCP is a nova in early phase. Our spectrum is posted at http://www.bao.city.ibara.okayama.jp/astro/2014/nova/TCP_J17154683-3128303_Mar27.png.
