Following the posting on the Central Bureau's Transient Object Confirmation Page about a possible Nova in Cen (TOCP Designation: J14250600-5845360) we performed some follow-up of this object remotely through the 2.0-m f/10.0 Ritchey-Chretien + CCD of "Faulkes Telescope South" (MPC Code - E10). On our images taken on April 09.5, 2012 we can confirm the presence of an optical counterpart with unfiltered CCD magnitude 8.7 at coordinates: R.A. = 14 25 04.45, Decl.= -58 45 34.3 (equinox 2000.0; UCAC-2 catalogue reference stars. According to VIZIER there is a 15.319 J-magnitude star at 2.6 arcseconds from the transient position (NOMAD1 0312-0489482).
