Just missed it 8-(

Dr Paul Leyland

I was observing AF And and AE And last night at about 20201030T2300Z. The full moon was so bright that I had difficulty getting an adequate SNR for them at around V=17 so didn’t even try for the recurrent nova.

It might have been possible, I suppose, but certainly would not have been easy to get an unambiguous re-discovery and almost certainly not decent photometry.

Tonight promises to be clear.
