Yes, that was the idea. The first 60-second exposure image was only to
have a deep image of the field for the blog. Unfortunately, just after
the starting of the imaging session, clouds suddenly covered the area
where the nova is located. So it has been not possible to proceed with
the planned shorter filtered exposures.
