A possible nova in Sagittarius was discovered by Stanislav Korotkiy (Ka-Dar Obs.) and Kirill Sokolovsky (ASC Lebedev/SAI MSU) on tree images, obtained on 2012 Apr 21.01123UT with a wide-field survey camera (F=135mm f/2.0 telephoto lens and ST8300M unfiltered CCD, 30sec exposure time) at Ka-Dar Observatory's TAU Station, Nizhny Arkhyz, Russia (MPC COD C32). The object is clearly visible at magnitude 9.6 +/-0.3. The limiting magnitude of the images is ~14.0 (the scale is calibrated using V magnitudes of Tycho-2 stars in the field). Initial astrometry using nearby UCAC2 stars (RA, Dec, J2000): 17:45:28.03 -23:05:22.8 +/-1". The object is not visible on our previous images obtained on Apr 17.99UT (limiting mag. 14.0). The USNO-B1.0 catalog lists USNO-B1.0 0669-0621295 (magnitudes R1=16.21, B2=18.61, R2=18.65, I=16.62mag) just 0.6" away from the above position. The object could not be identified as a previously known one using MPChecker, AAVSO VSX and SIMBAD. Discovery images URL: http://www.astroalert.su/files/pnv_j17452791-2305213.jpg

Following the posting on the Central Bureau's Transient Object Confirmation Page about a possible Nova in Sgr (TOCP Designation: J17452791-2305213) we performed some follow-up of this object remotely through 0.25-m f/3.4 reflector + CCD from MPC code H06 (Mayhill station, NM) On our images taken on April 22.4, 2012 we can confirm the presence of an optical counterpart with unfiltered CCD magnitude 9.1 at coordinates: R.A. = 17 45 28.02, Decl.= -23 05 24.6 (equinox 2000.0; UCAC-3 catalogue reference stars). According to VIZIER there is a 16.21 R1-magnitude star at 1.261 arcseconds from the transient position (USNO-B1.0 0669-0621295).
