Forums Spectroscopy Nova in M31 spectrum

Robin Leadbeater

Went for a spectrum last night with the ALPY 200 but found that a series of power cuts during the storm yesterday had corrupted the observatory computer drive. 15.6 is bright for an M31 nova so definitely worth trying for even with a standard ALPY and novae spectra still show strong emission features later on even when they start to fade in measured brightness.
