Minoru Yamamoto, Okazaki, Aichi, Japan reported his discovery of possible nova (mag about 10.6) on four 15-s frames (limiting mag about 12.7) taken during Mar 11.8012 - 11.8183 UT with CANON 5DMRK2 camera + 135-mm-f.l. lens. The position was given as R.A. = 17h35m50s.5, Decl. = -29d34'24" (equinox 2000.0, uncertainty +/- 5"). He noted that it was mag below 11.0 on Feb. 10.8372 UT.

I took confirmation images of this PNV with 0.25-m f/3.4 astrograph + SBIG ST-10XME CCD (T-05, iTelescope.NET) at Mayhill, NM, USA remotely. Photometry results were V=10.99, Ic=8.38. Position end figures were 50.41 and 23.95 in R.A. and Dec., respectively. My image is available at http://meineko.sakura.ne.jp/ccd/PNV_J17355050-2934240.jpg. Seiichiro Kiyota (Kamagaya, Japan)
