2015 02 18.18366

This transient was observed on 2015 02 18.18366 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. 180-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: 44.25; 36.1 - Decl.:+16d 05' 36.1", note the discovered reported a wrong initial declination - (J2000.0, mean residuals of 0.2" on both axes).
