This transient was observed on 2015 11 02.85515 by G. Masi, remotely using the 17"-f/6.8 robotic unit part of the Virtual Telescope Project facility, at Bellatrix Astronomical Observatory in Ceccano, Italy. 120-seconds exposures, unfiltered, show the source at mag. 16.8 (R mags for the reference stars from UCAC-4). We also performed astrometry, getting the following end figures: 47.74; 36.4 (J2000.0, mean residuals of 0.2" on both axes).
2015 11 01.91
F. Ciabattari, E. Mazzoni and S. Donati report the discovery of an apparent supernova (unfiltered magnitude = 17.2) on images (limiting magnitude 19.5) obtained on November 1.91 UT and on November 2.88 UT with a 0.5m Newtonian telescope + CCD FLI Proline 4710 camera at Borgo a Mozzano - Italy, in the course of the Italian Supernovae Search Project. The new object is located at A.R. = 02h00m47s.78, Decl. = +16°41'36".5 (equinox 2000.0, astrometry with respect to UCAC-2 stars) which is 2 arcsec est and 4 arcsec south of the centre of Galaxy PGC1514767.
