As first announced on CBET 3691, S. Nakano reported the
discovery by Koichi Itagaki (Teppo-cho, Yamagata, Japan) of a
possible nova (mag 13.8) on an unfiltered CCD frame taken on Oct.
28.443 UT using a 0.21-m reflector; Itagaki measured the variable's
position as R.A. = 19h02m33s.35, Decl. = +3o15'19".0 (equinox
2000.0). The new object was designated PNV J19023335+0315190 when
it was posted at the Central Bureau's TOCP webpage. It was
confirmed spectroscopically as a "Fe II"-type nova close to maximum
brightness on Nov. 3.764 by U. Munari (Padua Observatory).
Additional observations are given on CBET 3691. N. N. Samus writes
that this nova has been given the permanent GCVS designation V2830

An avid amateur astronomer, Ian writes the weekly sky updates for ABC Radio Science and is science adviser to iTelescope. When not staring at the sky he is an equally enthusiastic molecular pharmacologist at the University of Adelaide, Australia.
"Over at Astroblog I largely guide people to the view of the sky as seen with the unaided eye. But I’m also an iTelescope.Net user, and I’m very honoured to have been invited to highlight some of the interesting objects that can be seen through the iTelescopes.
While many people are familiar with the larger, more glamorous objects in the night sky that make good iTelescope targets, there are a host of lesser known, interesting objects that are well worth chasing such as fast moving Near Earth Objects, Novae and Comets." Twitter @ianmusgrave
