Abstract (from CDS):

L. A. G. Monard, Pretoria, South Africa, reports his discovery of a variable object (mag 14.2) on unfiltered CCD images taken on May 14.14 UT, the object located at R.A. = 0h54m34s.16, Decl. = -37o38'28".6, which is 227" west and 153" north of the core of the Sculptor-group galaxy NGC 300. Nothing is visible at this position on a red Digitized Sky Survey image (limiting mag about 20.5).
