This is a stack of ten ten second images out of a series of images taken in gaps in the clouds after Nick James had reported it was in outburst.  I haven't yet worked out how to do the astrometry (I'm working on it!) but this image shows that it is brighter than a mag 15 star in the background and not as bright as a mag 11.5 star nearby.
