dwarf nova confirmed using ALPY 600 spectrographs

ALPY owners here might be interested in these confirmation spectra by two amateurs Paolo Berardi and Umberto Sollecchia of this transient object in Lyra

dwarf nova confirmed

Thanks for pointing this out, Robin.

It's fascinating to see that the brightest DNe are within range of confirmation by amateur spectroscopists!

spectrographs used

A small correction:- Umberto used an ALPY 600 but Paolo used a LHIRES with 150l/mm grating giving a similar resolution.
