My First Image of Nova Lupus 2016
Despite rubbish conditions (low haze and close to te horizon, that's the roof of the house at the bottom) I was able to pick up the nova. compare this camera image with the simulations at this page.
Despite the less than ideal conditions form comparison stars I estimate the visual magnitude to be between 6.7 and 6.8, definitely not less than 6.9 (comparison stars TYC 7847-2084-1, TYC 8295-1806-1, TYC 7848-731-1, TYC 7849-1310-1, TYC 7849-2514-1)
Aquí en argentina pude observarla dos noches consecutivas ,mi registro esta en mi blog :dibujosenlanoche.blogspot.com.ar ,si gustas pasar.
