About this image

This animation shows the rapid fade of Nova Cas 2020 (V1391 Cas) between the last time I imaged it (November 27) and tonight. This DQ Her fade is discussed in the thread here. The star just to the north of the nova is around mag 17.1 (Gaia G) and the nova is not visible to the limit of this stack which is around mag 19.
