PNV J03093063+2638031

R.A. 03h09m29.86s Decl. +26°38'04.49" (J2000.0)
2014 Oct. 29.630 UT, 11.2; 29.815, 11.0 (CCD, unfiltered).
Probably a CV with large outburst amplitude
(blue 18-19 magnitude star at quiescence)

There is a GALEX source 1.3" from the position that was
reported by Seiichiro Kiyota:
GALEX J030929.7+263804
R.A. 03h09m29.767s Decl. +26°38'04.82" (J2000.0)
FUV= 19.83, NUV= 19.68 mag

Further possible identifications:
USNO-B1.0 1166-0037733:
B1=19.18, R1=18.66, B2=19.22, R2=18.14, I=18.70 mag
GSC 2.3.2 NCGZ009444:
F=18.22, V= 18.25, N= 18.35 mag
WISE J030929.78+263804.2:
W1=16.610, W2=16.397 mag
SDSS J030929.77+263804.2:
u=19.137, g=18.882, r=18.907, i=19.011 mag

"2014 10 29.630
Discovered by Seiji Ueda, Hokkaido, Japan, on three 30-s frames
(limiting magnitude = 12.9) using 0.25-m f/3.4 reflector + Nikon
digital camera, who confirmed the star has no motion on three
frames taken on 2014 Oct. 29.815 and then star was mag.= 11.0.
Nothing is visible at this location on his recent frames (limiting
mag.= 13) taken on 2014 Oct. 22 and 27 UT using same
telescope."

"2014 10 30.2816
I took confirmation image of this PNV with 0.25m (f/3.4) Reflector
+ SBIG ST-10XME CCD at Mayhill, NM, USA of iTelescope.NET,
remotely. Photometric results were B=10.83, V=11.02 and Ic=10.92.
Position end figures were 29.86 and 04.49 in R.A. and Dec.
