Hola everyone -

On a pair of exposures of 1.75 and 2.75 minutes (85mm Nikon + red filter
+Tech Pan film) taken at October 9.008 UT (average), I found a new stellar
object in Circinus at (2000) RA = 15h 17.8m, Dec = -61d 58', approximate
magnitude 8.2.  No star brighter than magnitude 11.5 was seen on the most
recent exposure taken at September 26.004 UT.

Tonight, if it clears, I will try to get an improved position and,
possibly, a spectrum.  But the weather forecast is not rosy, so please
confirm if you can.

All the best to all,  Bill (William) Liller
