After hearing of the discovery of another nova and with the best chance I’d had in two weeks, I went hunting for it last night 27 June.  This was a lesson in the value of good polar alignment as I ended up using co-ordinates rather than star hopping.  After comparing my image with charts I managed to locate it and with Jeremy Shears magnitude estimate from last week I can see I almost missed this one.
