[vsolj-alert 45] Possible recovery of V893 Sco, or a new variable star?

Possible recovery of V893 Sco, or a new variable star?

   Katsumi Haseda (haseda@mxs.meshnet.or.jp) reports the photographic
discovery of a new variable star using 10cm F4.0 twin astrograph.  Kodak
T-Max 400 film was used.

   16h 15m 15s.1  (J2000.0)
   -28o 37' 40"

   This object may be identical with the following ROSAT source.

161516.2 -283711 (2000.0) 1RXS161516.2-283712 0.346 0.94 0.53

   Considering the rapid change in brightness, and the possible identity
with the ROSAT source, this variable may be identical with V893 Sco,
a "lost" suspected dwarf nova despite many investigators efforts. 
The object also lies ~6' from the obscure suspected variable NSV07570.

   Follow-up observations, quiescent photometry and spectroscopy,
secure optical identification of the ROSAT source, future search for
possible outbursts, and search for archival images are strongly encouraged.
