Using an online chart and my Pocket Sky Atlas, I was able to starhop from Sagitta and locate this "new star" right on the border of the constellation Delphinus. I waited in my zero gravity chair with my 12x36's for about an hour while high clouds drifted through the Aquila/Sagitta/Delphinus region but my patience was finally rewarded and it was a farly easy hop once I could see the complete starfield.
The nova appeared as a crisp bluish-white point source. About .7° to the SW was the planetary nebula NGC 6905. At this magnification and with the limited transparency and bright moonlight, the PN was hard to see at times and needed averted vision to relocate when it would wink out. I also had to struggle with heavy dew conditions and got the hair dryer out 3 or 4 times during the 2 hour session.
The sketch was done at the eyepiece with 2B and HB pencils and a sharp stump (for the PN).
Pretty cool to see this nova--an unimaginably massive explosion so far away but still visible to us.
