SUPERNOVA 2013ff IN NGC 2748 = PSN J09133888+7628108
Raffaele Belligoli and Flavio Castellani report the discovery of an
apparent supernova (mag 16.0) on two unfiltered CCD images taken with a 
0.4-m
reflector at Ferrara di Monte Baldo, Verona, Italy, on Aug. 31.94 and 31.94
UT. The new object is located at R.A. = 9h13m38s.88, Decl. = +76d28'10".8
(equinox 2000.0), which is 19" west and 21" south of the center of NGC
2748.
The discovery and reference images were posted at the following website URL:

designated PSN J09133888+7628108 when it was posted at the Central Bureau's
TOCP webpage and is here designated SN 2013ff based on the spectroscopic
confirmation reported below. Additional CCD magnitudes for 2013ff: Sept.
1.804, 15.9 (Giancarlo Cortini, Predappio, Italy; independent discovery;
position end figures 38s.82, 10".7; offset 19" west, 21" north; no

Osservatorio Astronomico di Padova, Istituto Nazionale di Astrofisica; and

Valenti, Las Cumbres Observatory Global Telescope and University of 
California
at Santa Barbara, report that an optical spectrogram (range 340-820 nm;
resolution 1.3 nm) of PSN J09133888+7628108 = SN 2013ff, obtained on Sept.
2.95 UT with the Asiago 1.82-m Copernico Telescope (+ AFOSC), shows it to be 
a
type-Ic supernova. Adopting for the host galaxy (NGC 2748) a recessional
velocity of 1476 km/s (Kamphuis et al. 1996, A.Ap. Supple. 116, 15; via 
NED),
a best fit is found with type-Ic supernovae around maximum light. The Asiago
classification spectra are posted at website URL 
http://sngroup.oapd.inaf.it;
classification was made via GELATO (Harutyunyan et al. 2008, A.Ap. 488, 383)
and SNID (Blondin and Tonry 2007, Ap.J. 666, 1024).
