Only my second nova observed with binos (the last one was Nova Cygnii 2001). There is a faint star visible near the coordinates given by Lew in a previous post. I used a AAVSO chart to make sure this is the right object. This observation was confirmed by my partner (Martin Morin) and with is 8" dobsonian.
