This PNV was discovered independently by Shigehisa Fujikawa, Kan'onji, Kagawa, Japan, on a CCD frame taken using a Minolta F 3.5 f 120mm lens. He reported his discovery to National Astronomical Observatory of Japan at 9:57 UTC on 2015 Oct 31, which was before the above discovery was posted on the TOCP page. His frame was taken on 2015 Oct 31.3859 UT and yielded the position end figures as 59s.33 and 06".8 and the magnitude as 11.8.

This transient was observed on 2015 10 31.70597 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. 11.3 (R mags for the reference stars from UCAC-4). We also performed astrometry, getting the following end figures: 59.29; 12.8 (J2000.0, mean residuals of 0.2" on both axes).

K. Ayani, Bisei Astronomical Observatory, forwards a report by Mitsugu Fujii (Kurashiki, Okayama, Japan), who obtained spectrograms (R about 500 at H-beta) of this PNV on Nov. 2.417 UT and Nov. 3.389 UT with a 0.4-m telescope of Fujii Kurosaki Observatory. He found a strong and broad H-alpha emission line, an H-beta emission line, He I (501.6, 587.6, 706.5 nm) emission lines, and an N II (567.9 nm) emission line on both nights. The FWHMs of the H-alpha line, measured by Gaussian fitting, are 4800 km/s on Nov. 2 and 4200 km/s on Nov. 3. Fujii's spectrograms are posted at website URL http://otobs.org/FBO/etc/pnv_j18225925-1914148.htm.
