A classification spectrum

Forums Spectroscopy Possible nova in M31 A classification spectrum

Robin Leadbeater

The spectrum has now developed sufficiently to attempt a classification. 

It shows a clear broad (~1600km/s FWHM ) Ha alpha emission line and an H beta emission line at the expected radial velocity for this region of M31 so in the absence of any professional spectra, I have classified it as a Nova in TNS.
