Scosmico

Nova Delphinus 2013

Recommended Posts

Seems to form one corner of a tiny "kite", with a couple of tails. Mostly +6-7 magnitude stars, so should outshine those! :)

Should be in Watec / Star Analyser spectrum range. Only a short time of clear skies before cloud! Never good to plan... :p

I just marked it off in Stellarium for later as it is looking like it may be clear.

It may or may not be useful to some. Assuming I have it marked right..:D

Yup, nice one. :)

Of course it's now gone "eight octa" cloudy here... I can relax in front of the TV.

Lucky enough to see it last night. CertZinly outshined the stars around it and looked as though there was some gas around it. Very nice! My first Nova!

Thanks for posting the chart.

Should make it easier.

Scope is outside cooling down, sky is clear and beer is in the fridge.

So it's 'just' a novae, not super novae. The super novae implodes to form a black hole right?

I believe thats mass dependent.

Novas usually occur in binary systems from what I remember where they accumulate material from their stellar partner, reach a certain mass and then expel the extra material.

There's the occasional drift of cloud coming over this way, but I'm hoping the huge lump of cloud currently racing over Ireland and into Wales is sufficiently delayed.

This is my current view when pointed at it...

I'll give it half an hour.

Ha ha! I know that feeling so well. The excitement as the goto slews round at the object you've chosen to see, then, DOH!

Well I think I'm looking at it. I'm pointed at the right place and there's an object that looks a lot like an ordinary yellowish star outshining its neighbours.

Pretty unremarkable unless you know the story behind it but at least I've seen it.

Woo hoo! I think this is it? Can anyone confirm for me? I flipped the image horizontally wich I think is right with a newt but apologies if its back to front or upside down.

Just seen it with the bins too, while the scope is shooting some more subs.

:D:D that is so..

"The first ten million years were the worst. And the second ten million years, they were the worst too. The third ten million years I didn't enjoy at all. After that I went into sort of a decline"

:p;)

Just eyeballed it, my guess is about mag 4.5..

Here's the image I took of the nova just now. This is 13 x 30s exposures

Very nice. I don't think I was really making much effort with my single 10s jpeg lol. The sky is milking over now but if it clears again ill go and have a proper go.

Just been looking at it with 10x50 - it's in the same field as 29 Vul but to me is not brighter. Near 5 mag. They are the two brightest stars in the region though.
