Nova in M31 2000

The Remanzacco Observatory team found a nova in M31 at the magnitude of 17.6 on October 22.9. It was not present on other frames of the same region taken with their instrumentation on September 1, 7, 8, 9 and 22 (vsnet-campaign-nova 88). Following this, F. Ewalt reported no object can be seen in his image taken September 5 and there is a "possible" stellar object dimmer than magnitude 18 in his October 24 image (vsnet-campaign-nova 89). The Remanzacco Observatory team again performed CCD observation on November 1 and estimated the magnitude of 18.7 (vsnet-campaign-nova 87).
