Nova Delphini 2013: spectra from the Virtual Telescope

Nova Delphini 2013 has been followed from the Virtual Telescope since its discovery. In particular, our prompt low-res spectroscopy unveiled the nova nature, as reported on CBET 3628.

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.
