Dear (southern) CBAers,

Berto Monard has confirmed powerful superhumps at P=0.0622(2) d in this
new SU UMa star.  It's a bright son-of-a-gun, a perfect CBA target.  So
much as I hate to direct you away from V803 Cen, I have to admit that this
is a better choice right now... since V803 Cen has come down from its
super and is in its cycling state right now.

Jonathan has put up a chart.  Nasty field.  There oughta be a law.

If you can possibly do both stars, do 'em!  Here's Berto's visual
