NOW: Nova Observation Withdrawl

It’s been 5 nights since I’ve been able to observe V0339 Delphini (was Nova Delphini 2013) due to cloudy conditions. Sigh.

Tonight looked promising before dinner and before I put the kids to bed. Cloud cover had rolled in by the time I got back outside though.

I haven’t looked at the light curve for a couple of days. I’d say it’s down to 7.5 or pushing towards 8.0.

He goes away and looks…

Yes, around 7.5. The weather forecast for Adelaide doesn’t look much better for the next few days so I may have to be a spectator for awhile.

Edit: I just managed to glimpse the field through binoculars but there was too much cloud to see the nova.
