Jay Strader, Laura Chomiuk, Laura Shishkovsky (MSU) report/s a classification of object: AT 2016blf

Type: CV

Remarks: We obtained an optical spectrum of ASASSN-16do/AT2016blf (ATel #8888) on UT 2016 April 17.07 with the Goodman Spectrograph on the SOAR telescope. The source has a blue continuum and broad double-peaked Balmer and He 5875 emission at z~0, with an H-alpha FWHM of about 2400 km/s. This value is high for a CV and suggests the source is observed close to edge-on.

The following Classification spectrum was provided:
