We confirm a recent nova candidate in M 31 reported to us by K. Hornoch. The object is visible on two 5x120s stacked unfiltered CCD images obtained with the 0.35-m f/11 OU/OAM PIRATE Schmidt-Cassegrain telescope (+ SBIG STL-1001E CCD camera) at Costitx, Mallorca, Spain on 2010 July 08.02 and 08.07 UT, respectively, with a corresponding R magnitude of 18.4. The position for the nova candidate is RA = 00h43m20.11s, Dec = +41d21'23.7" (J2000, accuracy of 0.3"), which is 403" east and 314" north of the core of M 31.
