Discovered by K. Itagaki, Yamagata, Japan, on an unfiltered CCD frame using 0.50-m f/6 reflector, who has confirmed on four followed-up frames after the discovery. Nothing is visible at this location on the past frames, but no recent frame. Verifying was done on a frame ( limiting mag.= 19.5) taken on 2006 August 3.591 UT using 0.60-m f/5.7 reflector at Yamagata. There is a discovery image at http://k-itagaki.jp/images/7712.jpg.

Mag.= 16.0, position end figures 52s.21, 53".3 observed by T. Noguchi, Chiba-ken, Japan, using 0.23-m f/6.3 Schmidt Cassegrain + unfiltered CCD. A posted image at http://park8.wakwak.com/~ngc/images/PSNinNGC7712.jpg.

This probable supernova in NGC 7712 was detected with 6 x 5 min images using a clear filter Photometry: Mag 16.48 +/- 0.07 C (V for ref; USNOA2) Astrometry: RA 23 35 52.26 Dec +23 36 52.6 These data were collected remotely by Joseph Brimacombe, Coral Towers Observatory, Cairns, Australia.

2015 05 19.05986

This transient was observed on 2015 05 19.05986 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. 17.3 (R mags for the reference stars from UCAC-4). We also performed astrometry, getting the following end figures: 52.24; 52.2 (J2000.0, mean residuals of 0.1" on both axes).
