Several of the \"blank fields\" in the novae atlas by Duerbeck were imaged at the WIYN 3.5 m telescope during technical engineering and commissioning activities in 1994-1995. Several old novae have been recovered utilizing CCD photometry. Multiobject spectroscopy with the Hydra/MOS instrumentation at WIYN was also used on random stars in the fields to search for a cataclysmic variable. The old novae candidates identified include SV Ari, V465 Cyg, SS LMi, V2104 Oph, GR Ori, V529 Ori, UW Per, and UW Tri.
