Nova ASASSN-16ma in Sagittarius

I was able to observe this nova (also designated as PNV J18205200-2822100) that discovered on October 25th in Sagittarius only a degree away from another nova, designated TCP J18102829-2729590, that was discovered on October 20th.

Both objects are very low in the sky from our latitudes and quite hard to observe. Observations has to be done even before the beginning of the astronomical night to catch the object above the horizon.
