The start of spectroscopy on Kolonica Saddle
Finally in 2018 I made the first spectrum of variable star. LISA spectrograph was installed on 11″ Celestrone telescope. The instrument was purchased as one part of Gerald Handler’s grant. The plan was to install it on the 60 cm telescope of Masaryk University in Brno, Czech republic. For technical reasons it was not possible. Then arise the option of 1 meter VNT. But the 9 meter focal length is too much for the slit of the spectrograph. Thus the final destination is C11. In the observing program there are Be stars from Gerald’s list. Time to time I make spectrum of some symbiotic star. In 2018 the special attention was paid to the newly discovered symbiotic star ASASSN-V J195442.95+172212.6 = V426 Sge.
