It seems a good many novae have been put in the variable-star
category by astronomers.

+0.3 in 1942.
Here's a Wikipedia page on novae that includes a list of novae that
attained seventh magnitude and up since 1891, more objects for my
fixed-stars lists (probably the novae page, too, once I can get a
handle on their astrological influence).
And this is the Wikipedia supernova page.
