The New Nova Delphini 2013 on August 16th, 03:13ut.  Discovered by a Japanese amateur astronomer Koichi Itagaki of Yamagata, Japan two days ago at a magnitude 6.2 then and now much brighter from my observation the day before, estimated now between 4.5-6 magnitudes (outburst?). It is located in  the constellation Delphinus. (Equipment: LX200ACF 12 in. OTA, F6.3, CGE mount, ST402me NAB Ccd, Astronomik LRGB filter set.)
