Abstract: The results of UBVRHHK photometric, UBVRI polarimetric, and spectrophotometric (2.1322.5-722.5 nm) observations of the second Nova Vulpeculae (QU Vul) are given for the period from May 1985 to December 1985. A dust shell of the Nova was discovered in June 1985. A model of the dust shell, to explain the observed properties of the Nova, is proposed. The paper reports M„, f , and the radius of the Nova for several times. Observations of QU Vul were launched with the 1 m telescope of the Assy High-Altitude Observatory (near Alma-Ata) in January 1985. The first results of UBVRIJHK photometry were published by Bergner et al. (1985a, b). Photometry of the Nova was performed 19 times over the period May 1985—December 1985 (Table I). The observations were made with the three-channel multipurpose photometer-polarimeter FP3U (Bergner et al., 1985c, d). Nineteen Vul and 23 Vul (Table IV) served as comparison stars.
