I managed to get a remote image from New Mexico this morning of Itagaki's new PSN

in NGC 7331 (PSN J22370217+3424052). Had a go at unfiltered photometry based on

the Trondal sequence R mag of 15.4 for a nearby field star, but clearly the PSN is

right next to a bright foreground star! After much fiddling I came up with a CR mag

of 16.0 unfiltered on 2013 April 22.442 UT, but clearly there is room for much error

here. Even so, it was good to image a brand new PSN within a day of its discovery.

 

Regards,

Martin
