SUPERNOVA 2013Q IN NGC 7753 = PSN J23470787+2929115
[Editor's note: this text replaces that on CBET 3400 (offset).]
Zhijian Xu, Nanjing, Jiangsu, China; and Xing Gao, Urumqi, Xinjiang,
China, report the discovery of an apparent supernova (mag approximately 17.5)
on a 40-s unfiltered CCD survey image (limiting mag about 18.0) taken by Xing
Gao in the course of the Xingming Sky Survey around Jan. 25.580 UT with a
Celestron C14 Schmidt-Cassegrain telescope at Mt. Nanshan. The new object is
approximately located at R.A. = 23h47m07s.87, Decl. = +29d29'11".5 (equinox
2000.0), which is about 34".3 east and 11".3 north of the center of NGC 7753.
Nothing is visible at this position on a Digitized Sky Survey image from 1991
Oct. 1 (limiting mag about 19.5; no bandpass provided). The discoverers have
posted images at website URL http://www.xjltp.com/XOSS/XM57ZX/XM57ZX.htm.
The variable was designated PSN J23470787+2929115 when it was posted at the
Central Bureau's TOCP webpage and is here designated SN 2013Q based on the
spectroscopic confirmation reported below. Additional unfiltered CCD
magnitudes for 2013Q: 2012 Dec. 9, [19.0 (Xu and Gao); 2013 Jan. 19, [18.0
(Xu and Gao); 20, [17.8 (Xu and Gao); 25.730, 17.0 (Alessandro Dimai, Cortina
d'Ampezzo, Italy; independent discovery, reported after posting by Xu and Gao
on the TOCP; 0.28-m f/6.3 telescope; position end figures 07s.78, 09".4; offset
43" east, 9" north of nucleus of galaxy NGC 7753; limiting mag about 18.0);
26.077, 17.3 (R. A. Koff, Bennett, CO, USA; Meade 0.25-m f/10 reflector +
Apogee U-47 camera; nearly-full moon; limiting mag 19.3; position end figures

L. Tomasella, S. Benetti, E. Cappellaro, A. Pastorello, M. Turatto, and
P. Ochner, Osservatorio Astronomico di Padova, Istituto Nazionale di
Astrofisica, report that optical spectroscopy (range 340-820 nm; resolution
1.3 nm), obtained on Jan. 30.77 UT with the Asiago 1.82-m Copernico Telescope
(+ AFOSC; range 350-820 nm, resolution 1.3 nm), indicates that PSN
J23470787+2929115 = SN 2013Q is a type-Ia supernova about ten days before
maximum light at redshift z = 0.017239 (Rhee and van Albada 1996, A.Ap. Suppl.
115, 407; via NED). The expansion velocity, deduced from the Si II 635.5-nm
absorption, is about 14000 km/s. The Asiago classification spectra are
posted at website URL http://graspa.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).
