Amazing find, presumably in late twilight, but impractical for me eg level with lowly Venus but ~25 deg further west and in rooftops from my obsy

Tried for the new nova at dusk tonight by offsetting from Venus via the go to scope but sky too bright even in O.5s exps and no stars recorded in the nova's field so far as a quick look revealed. Maybe a step too far for me :-)
