Optical Novae in M 32
We created a catalogue of all historical optical novae detected in M 32. During this work we noticed that a homogeneous naming of all novae in M 32 is missing. We decided to extend the CBAT naming scheme for M 31 novae to all optical novae and candidates in M 32 that have been reported in the literature and make the information available together with additional parameters and references in an up-to-date form via the Internet.
We intend to update the Internet pages regularly. Observers ar encouraged to provide input for historical and forthcoming optical novae in M 32 to the email address below.
We will include photometric and spectroscopic data of optical novae and candidates in M 32 covering all wavelengths.
