Australian Cooke and Nova Aquila 1918

Mr Edward Gardiner of Haverfield, Sydney NSW using a 6 inch Thomas Cooke & Sons telescope made some beautiful drawings of the spectrum of Nova Aquilae. On June 13th 1918 when observing the object, he noticed it was attended by a small close companion; this was conformed by Mr Stutt at Richmond and partly by Mr Nangle at Enmore. Mr Gardiner also detected a reversal of the Ha line on June 14th
