nice article.

One prior article gave a distance to T pyx by parallax of 3500 light years.

This one appears to more closely match the models involving the typical magnitude of red giant stars of early type M.

outburst probably turns the accretion disc onto the WD into an hourglass nebula similar the the supersize verion around Eta Carinae, where the old & new equatorial discs are lit up from inside by the bright central star,(The old hourglass nebula is almost invisible & shows up red, the inner is impressively dusty and quite bright).

Have a nice day:Ag
