Nova Del @ 11.2mV new

The fading has slowed and is now at 11.2mV. The star itself is not particularly interesting looking, as faint stars go, but the spectra is still dominated by O, N and He emission lines along with the H-balmer emission lines. Another couple weeks and it will be lost to the light dome of the San Francisco bay area to my west....

I'm a bit surprised and pleased that I have been able to follow its progress this far with a 80mm scope. Even entry level CCD cameras rock.

Thanks for posting the update. I haven't been out early
enough to image the nova lately. I'll have to make an
effort before it disappears to the west and put it on my
to do list for a revisit next year.

Indeed, revisiting Nova Del next year will be most interesting.
