    Hi Bob,
    
    Yes, this is another recently discovered CV that appears to have stable 
    pulsations.  They're not as obvious as the other guys now in the 5h - 9h 
    window... but I've so far only looked at a little data.  RX0636+35, 
    RX0704+26, SDSS0804+51, and (IGR or RX)0732.5-1331... all interesting new 
    DQ Her stars or very strong candidates.  These stars are still just a 
    little out of season, but it's a good time to start.
    
    But for this week, I think RX0636 is pretty bedevilled by moonlight...
