Dust formation likely in TCP J17394608-2457555

V. Joshi and D. Banerjee (Physical Research Lab., Ahmedabad, India, ATel #10369) report that their spectroscopic analysis of TCP J17394608-2457555, the nova in Oph, indicates that significant dust formation is likely to occur. I know that the extremely crowded region in which this nova is located makes it very difficult to observe, but observations are encouraged as the nova continues to evolve. Many thanks for your observing efforts!

Good observing,
