E. Conseil (France) reports the discovery of a probable nova in M31 located at 00h42m21.84s +41°02'03.5" using Slooh space robotic telescope T2 (17" Corrected Dall-Kirkham F/6.8 at Mt Teide, Canary islands). The transient is visible on 5 images taken between Jan 11.8236 and Jan 11.9479 at magnitude 18.0 U (UCAC4-V for ref), limiting magnitude 18.5. Discovery image visible at : https://c2.staticflickr.com/2/1624/24251057281_e25c9e2786_o.jpg Nothing was visible at that location on images taken around Jan 04.834

U.Quadri, L.Strabla and R.Girelli from (IAU Station 565) Bassano Bresciano Observatory, Italy, in the course of the ISSP Italian Supernovae Search Project, confirm this transient on a series of 10 unfiltered CCD images of 60 sec exposure each, taked on 2016 01 16.7253 UT of their 0.25m F/4.5 robotic Newton telescope equipped with Starlight Xpress Trius-SX9 CCD camera. PNV is located at R.A.= 00 42 21.78 Dec.= +41 02 03.3 +/- 1" (equinox 2000.0) around 127" West and 843" South of the center of M31 galaxy.
