ASASSN-16kd = PNV J17225112-3158349

This probable nova was posted on 2016 Sept. 8.22 UT
(8.5 hours after Kris Stanek's announcement in ATel #9469)
as PNV J17225112-3158349 on TOCP:

http://www.cbat.eps.harvard.edu/unconf/f...12-3158349.html

"2016 09 06.4808
Shigehisa Fujikawa, Kan'onji, Kagawa, Japan, reported
his discovery of this PNV to NAOJ. He discovered it at
11:32 UT on 2016 Sept 6 and reported it to NAOJ at
13:34 UT on 2016 Sept 6. He used a 120-mm F3.5 lens
for this discovery. This PNV seems to be the same as
ASASSN-16kd which was later announced in ATel #9469
at 20:40 UT on Sept 7:

Confirmation by Seiichiro Kiyota:
"2016 09 08.0623
I took confirmation images of this PN with 0.61-m f/6.5
CDK astrograph + FLI PL09000 CCD at iTelescope,
Sierra Remote Observatory, Auberry, CA. USA, remotely.
Photometric results were V=11.79 and Ic=9.33.

ASASSN-16kd was discovered in images obtained on UT 2016-09-07.003 at
V~11.4 mag, and we also have a detection of this transient on UT
2016-09-06.00 at V~12.1. We do not detect (V>17.4) the object in images
taken on UT 2016-09-02.99 and before. No previous outbursts are detected
in the previous 81 epochs of ASAS-SN data at this location since ASAS-SN
started observing the Galactic center in March 2016.ASASSN- 16kd was
