On Tuesday 16th March I was imaging Caroline’s Rose in Cassiopeia with a 50mm lens, so I had a wide enough field of view that the area around Nova Cas was in shot. In my stacked image I can just see a tiny star in the right place according to the finder chart circulated by the SPA, just above HIP 115566. It would have been much fainter back on 16th, I really hope to get another shot to compare it in the next few days.  The attached photo was taken with a Canon 1100D with 50mm fixed lens. It’s a stack of 280 x 8 seconds. I’ve included an inverted version as well.
