Nova Delphini 2013: spectra from the Virtual Telescope
Below, we report all the spectra available, taken every night since the explosion. For spectroscopy, we used our Celestron c14 robotic unit, equipped with a 100 lines/mm grating (SA 100).
It is very impressive to see how the emission signature of the Balmer series evolved over the covered timespan. RSpec was used to reduce the data. All spectra are calibrated in wavelength, but at the moment not corrected (normalized) for the instrumental response.
