As this star has been reportde to be in outburst I decided to attempt to take a spectra of it using my LISA spectroscope and a C11 telescope.
Unfortunately the weather intervened but I did achieve about 30 mins of exposure.
The spectra is noisy but I can confirm that there are no H emission lines that you would expect with a classical nova. Therr eis a very weak H beta absorption line but this is the only feature I can see. Maybe the weather will get better over the next few days and I can try again..
