A comparison of the spectrum this maximum with that by Miguel Rodriguez at a more typical maximum is in the latest BAA VSSC
It has now faded to visual magnitude ~7, a brightness more like that typically seen at maximum. The temperature from the TiO bands in the spectrum spectrum has dropped to that more typically seen at maximum, though the intensity of the Balmer emission remains high. Attached is a comparison between my most recent spectrum and that of Miguel Rodriguez taken at the 2020 maximum.
