Nova Ophiuchi 2009

Mati Morel has provided a comparison star sequence (email to vss-participants egroup) which is now incorporated the AAVSO charts for the nova.

The nova has faded to below V=13 by Aug 18 and is considered likely to be a “fast nova”. This makes observations all the more urgent.

The nova has received the official designation V2672 Oph
