We confirm the detection of the possible nova on a 5x120s dithered stacked CCD image obtained with the Open University PIRATE Planewave CDK17 0.43m Dall-Kirkham f/6.7 telescope at the Observatorio Astronomico de Mallorca (Costitx, Spain), using an SBIG STX 16803 CCD Camera (with a Kodak 4k x 4k chip with 9 microns sq. pixels) and Baader clear filter, on 2012 Feb 16.801 UT. This is the discovery instrument. The object had brightened considerably to R=15.7+-0.1 mag. The position is RA = 00:40:07.68, Dec = +40:46:12.6 (J2000, accuracy 0.4 arcsec). M.
