I am fairly confident that I have obtained an image of the Nova last evening 15th august at 21.03 gmt. Equipment Konica Minolta 5D Samyang 85mm f1.4 10sec at Iso 400 . Compairing the image with page 163 of Uranometria 2000 there is a star of at least Magnitude 6 at the correct position. The Camera was mounted on a driven Vixen Super Polaris mount atop a Orion Field tripod. The Sky conditions were not the dest with some haze and Cirrus , also the Moon !!
