I measured it this morning from an image taken by COAST last night at 17.48V.  I had it peaking on Sep 04 at 15.4V.

There are a quite a few bright observations in the AAVSO DB – visual 13.0-14.0 and CV 14.0-15.5.  I’m sure the visual observations are mis-identification.  I certainly can’t see it visually in my 51cm. 

I wrote a news article on the Nova in the September VSS Circular, which included a V-band image.   You can read it here.
