A dynamical study of the nova remnant of GK Per [SSA]


Due to their large expansion speed, the apparent growth of nearby nova remnants such as GK Per can be easily resolved from ground-based optical imagery on a timescale of months. If the expansion in the plane of the sky is coupled with the Doppler shift velocities, an almost complete dynamical picture is drawn. We will discuss our latest results of such a study on GK Per.
