My observer code is GSAD, this is my first request I make, I request that the Nova be observed in Scorpius - PNV J17224490-4137160 ( VSX - V1716 Sco ) in support of AAVSO Alert Notice 821. This supernova has been recently discovered and needs confirmation, it is very bright and I ask that it be photographed once a night with Blue - Red and Green filters, a 300-second shot per filter is enough until May 15

Target RA (H.HH) Dec (D.DD) Magnitude Telescope Observation Frequency Expiration Date Proprietary Term
V1716 Sco 17.379181 41.62119 7.0–19.0 BSM_S 1 Oct. 31, 2023 No

Arne suggests BVI to avoid the Halpha contamination in R.

Note that a 300s exposure would saturate at this time due to the brightness (7). I used an appropriate short exposure. Keep track of the fading.
