Nova Scorpii 2007

Nova Scorpii 2007

With a 4am bout of insomnia, I was reading online that a new nova was discovered in Scorpius earlier this month. I set out to see it, but I couldn't. In the freezing cold, I set up my camera and snapped a few 8-second digital exposures at ISO 400. I was very surprised to get an image of it. Though very dim in the image, its there. You can see a more unnatural, sharpened view at www.mrdempsey.com
