A reference catalogue and atlas of galactic novae

  • Hilmar W. Duerbeck


This catalogue and atlas contains information on 277 objects, mainly classical novae and related objects (recurrent novae, X-ray novae, dwarf novae with long cycle lengths, symbiotic stars and suspected new stars). For most objects, brightness ranges, accurate positions, finding charts and selected bibliographies are given.
