Nova Per 2020: low resolution spectrum

About this image

I receive the variable star outburst alerts via email but most are too faint for my spectroscopy rig. I was therefore excited to see a possibility with the recently announced Nova in Perseus. Its currently mag 10 (or thereabouts) and so well within the reach of a C11 and Alpy. Intermittent cloud didnt help (some subs were rejected) but enough data in teh end to see main details I think.
