NOVA SAGITTARII 2008 (V5579 Sagittarii)


Nova Sagittarii 2008 (V5579 Sgr) discovered (at mag 8.4) on two 30-s unfiltered CCD survey frames taken on Apr. 18.784 UT by K. Nishiyama (Kurume, Fukuoka-ken, Japan) and F. Kabashima (Miyaki-cho, Saga-ken, Japan) using a 105-mm f/5.6 camera lens (limiting mag about 12.6). See IAUC 8937. Position R.A. = 18h05m58s.88, Decl. = -2713'56".0 (equinox 2000.0).


The setup used. Left, at the entrance of the fiber link: a 0.2 m telescope.
At the output of the fiber link: the compact
LISA spectrograph
(note the Canon 85 mm f/1.8 camera lens, and at the top, an Audine CCD camera.
