I took confirmation images of this PSN with 0.50-m f/4.5 CDK astrograph + FLI-PL11002M at iTelescope.NET, Mayhill, NM, USA, remotely. I could not see any new object on my image in comparison with CCD image of NGC6246 taken on Jan. 12, 2015 and provided from Kunihiro Shima. I also checked several images of NGC6246 on Internet. A star existed at reported position in all images that I checked and its brightness were almost constant in them. My image is available at http://meineko.sakura.ne.jp/ccd/NGC6246-150918-L.jpg for validation. Seiichiro Kiyota (Kamagaya, Japan)

2015 09 19.75125

This transient was observed on 2015 09 19.75125 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. 120-seconds exposures, unfiltered, show the source at mag. 16.8 (R mags for the reference stars from UCAC-4). We also performed astrometry, getting the following end figures: 52.61; 34.5 (J2000.0, mean residuals of 0.2" on both axes).
