Excellent reactivity! A rare event at this magnitude
(for me, permament bad weather on Toulouse :( )

Fantastic, congratulations François!
Italy is under storms, weather forecasts say for another week... :(

Congratulations François!

I was able to get a spectrum through high altitude haze on June 16th (calibrated using HD208906 and the Miles spectrum).
Don't seem to be picking up the He II emission... :?:

Thank you Paolo and Tim.
The changes in spectra of DN in outburst are very fast.
See for instance SS Cyg : http://www.astronomie-amateur.fr/feuilles/CV/SS%20Cyg.html
However I'll verify my images.
Could you send me your spectrum for the database, Tim?
All the best
François
