However, Bond's high speed photometry revealed the presence of low amplitude flickering that when coupled with the appearance of the optical spectrum and KQ Mon's location near the old novae and white dwarfs in the two color diagram, suggested a strong similarity to the UX Ursa Majoris subset of the nova-like variables (Warner 1976). KQ Mon was observed at low dispersion with the IUE satellite on December 5, 1981 and February 5, 1982. The instrumentation and spacecraft characteristics are described by Boggess et al.

The line emitting gas can be anything from a skin of an accretion disc to expanding gas shell or even the atmosphere of the M star. The model is spherically symmetric so all the gas is at the same distance from the ionizing source. We assume a black body ionizing continuum and attempt to deduce its temperature from comparison of the model calculations with the observations. This simplified picture does not intend to represent a full realistic model for the system, but has some general consequences regarding some of the more important physical processes.

Results of spectroscopic observations are presented here which were obtained seven months after the 1978 outburst of WZ Sge. The primary result is a substantial upward revision for the orbital velocity amplitude of the primary component. 1 MG ). 2. OBSERVATIONS On the night of 1979 July 16 we obtained time-resolved spectroscopy of WZ Sge over 4 orbital cycles with the ITS Cassegrain spectrograph on the 3 m Shane telescope of Lick Observatory. The 1200 line grating and redsensitive image tube were used to provide optimal sensitivity and resolution at Ha.
