The F-17(p, gamma) Ne-18 direct capture cross section is important for understanding nucleosynthesis in novae. We have measured cross sections for the proton-transfer reaction N-14 (F-17, Ne-18) C-13 in order to determine asymptotic normalization coefficients for the F-17 + p system and hence the F-17(p, gamma) Ne-18 direct capture cross section. The technique and preliminary results are presented.
