Nova confirmed !

A confirmation spectrum of TCP J18102829-2729590, a galactic nova in Sagittarius. The target, setting rapidly in the west, was imaged using the Alpy 600 under challenging conditions, providing confirmation as a classical nova in the optically thick stage. The resulting ATel (kindly prepared by Steve Shore, University of Pisa) can be found here and the IAU CBET is published

.

Additional spectra at both high and low resolution have been acquired and made available via the ARAS spectral database.
