The new planet orbits HD 109246, a G0V star slightly more metallic than the Sun. HD 109246b has a minimum mass of 0.77M{jup}, an orbital period of 68 days, and an eccentricity of 0.12. It is placed in a sparsely populated region of the period distribution of extrasolar planets. We also present a correction method for the so-called seeing effect that affects the SOPHIE radial velocities. We complement this discovery announcement with a description of some calibrations that are implemented in the SOPHIE automatic reduction pipeline. These calibrations allow the derivation of the photon-noise radial velocity uncertainty and some useful stellar properties (vsini, [Fe/H], log R'hk) directly from the SOPHIE data. Description: Radial velocity measurements of HD 109246 obtained with the SOPHIE spectrograph and stars used to calibrate the Ssophie into the SMount Wilson to measure the logR'hk from the SOPHIE spectra.
