Nova V1405 Cas - 30.3.2021 at 22.45 - 30.3.2021 at 22.48 Vaala Observation number 97347

Visibility III / V

Jarmo Moilanen, Ursa (Pohjois-Suomi)

Dark place and clear night so I decided to photograph this Cassiopeian Nova (V1405 Cas) without follow-up. Well visible in the pictures. 10 exposures combined in Photoshop.
Brightness about +8.0 magnitude mainly based on images. I found stars with a magnitude of at least +11.9 in the image, but the star map I used ended up there. So the Lm of the image is less than +12 magnitude.
