Possible novae in M32 discovered by Stanislav Korotkiy and Vladimir Gerke on images, obtained on 2011 Oct. 01.70295UT using 0.40-m f/8 reflector + unfiltered CCD (STL-11000M) under the limiting magnitude = 19.5R at Ka-Dar Observatory, TAU Station, Nizhny Arkhyz, Russia (MPC COD C32). Mag=17.5C +-0.5 mag, astrometry: RA=00 42 42.77; DEC=+40 52 01.7 (+-0.2″). Three images caught this object. Image taken on Oct. 01.49471UT by L. Elenin (ISON-NM Observatory, Mayhill) does not detect the object (limiting mag 20.0R). In all surveys (DSS, SDSS and 2MASS), this area of ​​the sky is very bright. No object in: MPChecker, VSX AAVSO and SIMBAD. Image URL: http://www.astroalert.su/files/m32_2011-10-01_pnv.png

Object detected at position end figures 42.71, 01.3 (UCAC3, J2000, accuracy of 0.4"). Magnitude 17.1V. GRAS-001 (New Mexico, USA), telescope Tak Mewlon 12" (D=300mm, F=3600mm) + FLI Dream Machine IMG 1025 CCD camera + V filter, exp=480sec (summ), bin=1x1; Anton Drokin (Moscow, Russia).

Image taken on 2011 Oct. 01.49471UT and 2011 Oct. 02.47207UT by L. Elenin (ISON-NM Observatory, Mayhill) does not detect the object (limiting mag 20.0R), because this area of the sky is very bright. These are not real following pre-discovery magnitude limits.
