As of March 20, 2015, the nova is around 5th magnitudenova in Sagittarius discovered by John Seach, Chatsworth Island, NSW, Australia. Magnitude 6.0 object visible on 3 images taken with DSLR and 50mm f/1.0 lens, limiting magnitude 11.0. No object visible on images taken with same instrument on March 14.590 UT, limiting magnitude 10.5. No bright variable star, or minor planet at location
normally that would be naked eye visible, but due to my very bright, city lit sky, in inner west Sydney, Australia location, my limiting magnitude for NE is around 3.5 - 4.0
I picked it up easily this morning using camera at 70mm, f4, ISO1000 and 30 sec exposure
just to get you into the region here's a screen dump from Stellarium .....
as you can see there is no corresponding star in the circle
