In our attempt to obtain a spectrum of the faint M31 nova candidate PNV J00452885+4154094 (reported in ATel #3727) the wrong object was inadvertently placed on the spectrograph slit. A close comparison of the finding chart of Barsukova et al. (ATel #3725) with the HET acquisition image suggests that the spectrum attributed to PNV J00452885+4154094 is likely that of a faint nearby star located approximately 7" north of the nominal position of the nova candidate (which is not visible in the HET acquisition image). I apologize for any confusion this mistake has caused.
