Description

The nova in Perseus is a rapidly changing object. It is becoming very bright for the last two days. Here is a small set of image data from the last night.
The nova has to enter a nebula phase. So we are waiting for a new nebula.
I am collecting SII and OIII data too, and I will have a color image soon.

Description: Bi-color stack of Ha and SII. One can see the strong red color of the Nova, which corresponds to the strong peak of Ha emission.
