Nothing to go off an write papers about, but interesting to see variations in some of the peaks while others have remained relatively constant (proportional to neighboring peaks).

Nova Del is at 8th magnitude so working with a 80mm scope and SA100 grating, captured spectra @ 30 second unguided are pretty faint....still, relatively speaking, some of the variations may indicate actual changes in the nova spectra. Fascinating to follow!
