Not to exaggerate the might of cba-news... but as soon as I took V339 
Del off the menu, ATel #5505 announces the nova's emergence as a STRONG 
supersoft X-ray source.  So now it's time to put it back on the menu! 
The evening sky is crowded with good targets, and the brevity of 
Delphinus's appearance in the sky is a problem... but it's an important 
phase in a nova's life, not to come again for a long time.
