Found on photos other 2 stars with their own high motion (High proper-motion Star) there is also a third one but you can see that it is not cataloged as such for that it does not have a high displacement.

Have you reported it to the scientific bodies yet?  i believe there is a email or web address to report such findings.  Should report them as soon as you find them so scientists can start observing them with research grade instruments.

It seems to be fading already.  I heard a rumour to that effect yesterday, so I took another photo last night.  It does appear dimmer than in the first photo.

Nova at centre.  South is up.  For brightness estimate, compare to next brightest star (HIP 93033) at 11 o'clock position.
