This transient was observed on 2013 09 17.761 by Gianluca Masi, Francesca Nocentini and Patrick Schmeer, remotely using the 17" robotic unit part of the Virtual Telescope Project facility in Ceccano, Italy. Unfiltered images show a source at mag. 14.2 (R mags for the reference stars from UCAC-4). We also performed astrometry, getting the following end figures: 26.43s 21.2" (J2000.0, mean residuals of 0.15" on both axes).
