The "New" Star

Today's Astronomy Picture of the Day invites us to say "howdy" to a "new" star. A nova has been found in the constellation of Delphinus. Initial estimates put it at magnitude 6, when I last checked (last night) some reports were putting it at magnitude 4.5 or below and reports are it being an increasingly easy target in even modest instruments such as binoculars.
