Dear CBAers,

The ASAS-SN survey showed CP Eri in outburst yesterday, at 16.0.  We've 
obbserved one of these about 10 years ago - and it's been a long wait! 
This is an AM CVn star, a short-period helium CV, and it's (almost) sure 
to display prominent superhumps.  Very likely superoutoutburst, and 
decently placed at 03h 10m 32.7s -09d 45m 06s.

And speaking of super, a super-high-priority target.

joe
