An anniversary spectrum from 2018

I have a low resolution spectrum of V603 Aql taken in 2018 to mark the 100th anniversary. At mag 12 it makes a nice target for low resolution spectroscopy, though getting high enough cadence at high SNR to catch the orbital period might be difficult. (This spectrum was 2 hours)

The spectrum can be downloaded from the BAA spectroscopy database

Campaign close

Hello all, 

The AAVSO V603 Aql campaign has officially closed. The amount data collected over this is truly impressive. I am sure this collection will prove invaluable to any future studies on this object. 

I would like to thank all observers one more for their efforts over the campaign. Your dedication is inspiring.


Kind Regards

John Myles
