This is a different nova. This one has now been designated as Nova Sagittarii 2012 No 5
The one at mag 8 is Nova Sag 2012 No 4.
I have also taken a spectra of it and it is attached. I was going to take a follow up one tonight but cloud has intervened again. Because it is much brighter I have a much better S/N. There are many emission lines of Fe etc.
