Yes, QU Vul is a bridge too far for most, or maybe all, of you.  Not a 
particularly good suggestion on my part!  QR And, ES Cet, and V455 And 
would be better investments, plus V1101 Aql.  Early-season observations 
of V418 Gem, V405 Aur, and V647 Aur would also be very welcome, plus 
"Paloma" and FS Aur.

Which all implies that both LQ Peg and IGR J1955+00 should be retired.
Great campaigns on both!

Not meant to be a full review.  Still in Italy with only sporadic 
internet and running strictly on batteries.  Back Tuesday.

Just a single period (2.99 hrs) evident so far, but hints that some more subtle structure may emerge with more work." Should I continue on this target past tonight? Joe said continue for "at least another week". -- Michael J.
