Dear CBAers,

Let's keep this watch going for at least two more days.  There is some
evidence that the star is entering a new state - brighter in X-rays,
fainter (alas) optically.  Definitely bursting.  Not a target for
smallscopers, admittedly.

Other stars on the marquee now are V1432 Aql = RX1940-10 and V1315 Aql,
and pulse timings of AO Psc, FO Aqr.

Jerry Gunn has put together a very impressive streak on V603 Aql.  This
one remains a good target for small scopes for the next two weeks.
