     K. Hirosawa, Inazawa, Aichi, reports the discovery by Minoru
Yamamoto, Okazaki, Aichi, of a possible nova on Aug. 24 at
R.A. = 1h05m.1, Decl. = +54d02' (equinox 2000.0).  S. Nakano,
Sumoto, communicates the following precise position, obtained on
Aug. 26 by T. Kojima: R.A. = 1h05m05s.37, Decl. = +54d00'40".5
(equinox 2000.0, GSC).  Hirosawa also communicates positions obtained
on Aug. 26 by M. Iida (end figures 05s.66, 42".5) and by A. Sugie
(end figures 05s.35, 40".0).  Magnitude estimates: July 24, [10
(Yamamoto); Aug. 24.57 UT, 9.2 (Yamamoto, 200-mm f/4.0 lens and PO0
filter, T-Max 400 film); 26.58, 9.0 (Iida, Nagano, 0.16-m reflector
+ CCD, no filter); 26.62, 9.3 (S. Takahashi, 0.15-m refractor, visual);
26.62, 9.2 (Kojima, Chiyoda, 0.25-m f/6 reflector + CCD, V filter);
26.65, 9.37 (Sugie, Dynic, 0.6-m reflector + CCD, no filter).  G. V.
Williams, Harvard-Smithsonian Center for Astrophysics, has identified
the probable precursor on the Digital Sky Survey (epoch 1954.752,
Palomar red plate, mag 18-19) at end figures 05s.40, 40".6
(11 GSC reference stars, rms residual 0".3).

     Users of these Circulars are reminded that the information
contained in them may be freely used, provided that any republication
includes an appropriate acknowledgment, while the actual form of the
Circulars and sections thereof is subject to the usual copyright
restrictions.  These remarks apply both to the printed and electronic
versions.  The indiscriminate reproduction of whole or partial
Circulars in electronic bulletin boards and information services
is inappropriate.  Reproduction of this "form of expression" should be
restricted to "fair use" by subscribers and their close associates,
or by application to the undersigned for permission to reproduce all
or part of a Circular under occasional, special circumstances.
These Circulars are distributed by subscription.  Issues more than
one year old are available free of charge in the World Wide Web
(http://cfa-www.harvard.edu/cfa/ps/cbat.html) in both ASCII and .dvi
form but are subject to the same redissemination policy.  Appropriate
forms of acknowledgment for the use of information in a particular
Circular can be to the Circular No. itself, to the author of the
information extracted (information not otherwise attributed being
considered as provided by the editor), or to both.  The willful
republication of cometary orbital elements (for example) without an
indication of their source is a clear act of plagiarism.
