2014 03 26.6901

Zhijian Xu(Nanjing,Jiangsu,China) and Xing Gao (Urumqi,Xinjiang,China), report the discovery of a possible supernova (mag approximately 17.9) on several 40-s survey images (limiting mag about 19.5) taken by Xing Gao in Xingming Observation Sky Survey(C42) around Mar.26.69009 UT.using an unfiltered CCD ( + Celestron C14 Schmidt-Cassegrain telescope D=356-mm @f/6.9 ). The new object approximately located at R.A.=07h 48m 44s.10 Decl.=+54°36'40".5(equinox 2000.0). Which is about 54.8" east and 2.4" south of the center of the NGC 2446. Nothing is visible at this position on archival images taken on Mar.3(limiting mag 19.0),Mar.21(limiting mag 18.5), or on the DSS from Feb.25,1995(limiting mag about 19.5).

This object was observed with 3 x 60s images using an unfiltered Photometry: Mag. = 17.0 U. Follow-up image posted at URL http://njzhijian.lamost.org/PSN%20J07484410+5436405.jpg




2014 03 28.827

This transient was observed on 2014 03 28.827 by Gianluca Masi, Francesca Nocentini and Patrick Schmeer, remotely using the 17"-f/6.8 corrected Dall-Kirkham 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. 17.1 (R mags for the reference stars from UCAC-4). We also performed astrometry, getting the following end figures: 44.02; 40.5 (J2000.0, mean residuals of 0.2" on both axes).
