Spectroscopic Observations of PNV J17184504-2454221 (Nova Oph 2017) as a Classical Nova in the Iron Curtain Phase

Research output: Contribution to specialist publicationLetter

Abstract

PNV J17184504-2454221 (ATel #10959) has recently been announced as a nova candidate. We obtained a medium resolution spectrum (0.82A/px) using an Alpy600 spectrograph (two exposure, 600 sec, S/N of about 50 in the continuum from 4000-7000A) on 2017 Nov. 14.5 UT that confirm this identification and show that the ejecta are quite optically thick and at high expansion velocity.
