One of the brightest nova in recent history, 6mag is now visible in Delphinus. Here's you chance to record the varying brightness and collect useful spectra of an amazing object!! http://www.cbat.eps.

Many thanks for the post, I'll take a look as soon as I have the opportunity. It takes me back to the 70s and another nova Del, I think it was designated HR? Anyway, back in those days I used to do

Drifting cloud last night Thursday Aug 22 after dusk but got a quick shot via piggybacked 1100d and est mag at m5.5 against circled star and Sloan DSS. Perhaps more importantly [for me!] my 5th spect

Many thanks for the post, I'll take a look as soon as I have the opportunity. It takes me back to the 70s and another nova Del, I think it was designated HR? Anyway, back in those days I used to do a lot of variable star observing and I can remember observing Nova Del. Of course in those days, with no internet, notification would have likely been by a BAA circular by post. The quickest way to have an observation published would be by sending obserbvations to The Astronomer magazine which was published monthly and with a deadline of around 15th of the month prior to the publication date. I'll stop now, before I get too nostalgic.

On the Sky at Night flickr group a guy has uploaded a really wide 35mm view. Assuming he has the positioning right it could be a little tricky to find but it's certainly there.

Thanks for the heads up and the finder chart links folks :smiley:

Solid cloud here tonight but hopefully it will hang about long enough to get a scope or binoculars onto it. I've seen several supernovae but no novae, as far as I'm aware.
