This possible supernova in PGC 1808598 was detected with 15 x 10 min images using a clear filter Photometry: Mag 18.12 +/- 0.16 C (V for ref; USNOA2) Astrometry: RA 23 34 23.85 Dec +27 27 18.7 These data were collected remotely by Joseph Brimacombe, Coral Towers Observatory, Cairns, Australia.

2015 08 19.83665

This transient was observed on 2015 08 19.83665 by G. Masi and P. Catalano, 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. 19.5 (R mags for the reference stars from UCAC-4). The source is difficult to see, as it is faint and contaminated by the host galaxy light. We also performed astrometry, getting the following end figures: 23.81; 19.3 (J2000.0, mean residuals of 0.2" on both axes).
