Three bright objects 2 possible supernova and one possible nova have just ebb reported.
First is a magnitude 13.6 potential supernova in M61, PSN J12215757+0428185:
Possible Supernova (13.6 mag) in M61
R.A. 12h21m57.57s Decl. +04°28'18.5" (J2000.0) 2014 Oct. 29.8376 UT, 13.6 mag (CCD, unfiltered)
Discovered by Koichi Itagaki, Yamagata, Japan. Discovery image is at http://www.k-itagaki.jp/images/4303.jpg
The next is MASTER OT J120451.50+265946.6 – possible supernova (13.9 mag) in NGC 4080 (ATel #6634): http://www.astronomerstelegram.org/?read=6634
Both these supernova are only visible from the northern scopes, and very low to the horizon (16 degress at astronomical twilight just before sunrise). So very difficult targets for the iTelescopes.
The possible nova in Aries is much more achivable. and is high for a good chunk of thenigh from both northern and southern scopes.
PNV J03093063+2638031: possible "nova" (11.0 mag) in Aries discovered by Seiji Ueda (Hokkaido, Japan)
R.A. 03h09m29.86s Decl. +26°38'04.49" (J2000.0)
2014 Oct. 29.630 UT, 11.2; 29.815, 11.0 (CCD, unfiltered). Image at at
