Nicely captured. I saw it visually yesterday but did not sketch. We have a lot of fires here so I don't think I will see it here through the smoke again.

Nice drawing. The nova has brightened considerably since you saw it--hope you got to look again. You got a much better view of NGC 6905 than I did. I was sort of underwhelmed by the PN but I'm sure that was due to conditions and the low magnification I used.

A very fine sketch of the nova in Del. It is really good to see the star plots and planetary nebula which is not far away.
Of course when I got the alert notice from AAVSO it was cloudy and has been ever since. This one may stay bright for a while so I'm going to see it the next clear night.
Thanks to you and Michael I should be able to find it easily.

I've not seen this nova ( much to my regret we've had many cloudy nights and now the moon has taken over ) so I'm really appreciative of the work posted on this website!
