F. Castellani, Verona, Italy reports the discovery by Raffaele Belligoli, Flavio Castellani and Vittorio Andreoli, in the course of the ISSP Italian Supernovae Search Project, of an apparent nova on a co-added 7200sec unfiltered images taken with a Moravian G4-9000 KAF CCD unfiltered, from Monte Baldo Observatory (Ferrara di Monte Baldo, Verona, Italy), with the 0.4m f.8 Ritchey-Chrétien telescope, obtained on 2022 March 6.8265 UT. The new object is located at RA 09 55 25.59 DEC +69 07 55.8 (equinox 2000.0) Apparent magnitude about 19.5 in host Galaxy M81 Nothing is visible at this position on 02Nd march 2022 as reference

Follow-up: OMB extragalactic nova monitoring by ISSP collaboration, R.Belligoli, F.Castellani, V.Andreoli, reports the discovery of a PNV in M81. The new transient was clearly detected on '2022-03-06 19:50:13.056' UT using 24 x 300s frames (7200s total) obtained by a Moravian G4-9000 KAF unfiltered CCD with the 0.4m f.8 Ritchey-Chrétien telescope from Monte Baldo "A.Gelodi" Astronomic Observatory, località Novezzina, Ferrara di Monte Baldo, Verona, Italy. The discovery magnitude is 19.5±0.2 mag in the CV band (clear visual). Offset: 41W 241N. We will continue to monitor the nova light curve and strongly encourage additional follow-up observations.
