I’ve been monitoring the progress of Nova Del 2013 each clear night. It is slowly dimming and has now dropped below magnitude 6.0 which is generally considered the limit of naked eye visibility. The brightness is still high enough that I have continued the 0.01 second exposures. I take nine images, analyze each and record an average the nine estimates.

Below is a graph showing the measurements so far:
