Hi David,

Yes I saw your image. These are really useful as it helps with finding the target and spotting useful nearby guide stars.  It is annoying I could not pin down exactly what type it is. I have had some feedback from a professional using a different fitting program on my spectrum and he favours it being a type 1c. This would makes sense as a 1a-91T-like should be significantly brighter at this distance, though that could be down to extinction.. Hopefully I will get another go before it fades too much and perhaps it will have evolved enough to pin it down.
