Nova In Sagittarius #4 2012 Pics & Movie!
Another Nova in Sagittarius! Designation # PNV J18202726-2744263
There have been 5 new Novae appear in Sagittarius so far this year!
This Nova Sagittarius #4 was discovered by two Japanese observers, using just a 105mm lens & CCD camera.
The Nova Sagittarius #4 is at RA 18h 20m 27.6s Dec -27h 44m 26.3s and the brightest of the Five Novae!
The Nova #4 had reached Magnitude 7.7 mag at the time of discovery on July 7th 2012.
Nova Sagittarius #4 is definitely visible in Binoculars…but hurry this Nova #4 is now dimming and hovering around 9.2 Mag.
These images were captured with my homemade 16" diameter telescope & QHY8 CCD camera, the exposure time was 5 minutes.
I created an animation of the Nova when at 8th Magnitude and now dimming to Magnitude 9.2.
The animation shows the field before the Nova discovery on 07-07-2012, 6 days after discovery at magnitude 8, and the Nova has been dimming now at magnitude 9.2 at 21 days after discovery.
Here is the animated Movie: http://youtu.be/sgCQKOm0sto
The Nova is the brightest star at Center of the FOV! I included some illustrated versions as well, showing nearby star Magnitudes to help you estimate the brightness of the Nova!
