Dear CBAers,

I noticed Jeremy Shears' announcement of SS LMi in outburst - this is 
sort of a mystery object, and from his description of a 90-minute
light curve, it sounds like a good candidate as a superhumping DN.
The sky position is really quite bad, but I think if we can patch 
together some time series in Europe and the USA, we can learn the period 
(and assess the nature of the variability).  Tempting target for that 
last 2 hours of the night!

Also, I should remove HS0229+80 from our list of stars; I've seen a
few nights now, and the variability is quite weak... not really in our
realm of interest unless the star does something else to boost its

I carried out unfiltered photometry on this object for 90 mins  from Oct 
24.177 this morning, i.e. until dawn. During this time the object 
declined from 16.2C to 16.5C, then gradually rose again to 16.1C.

Follow-up photometry is strongly encouraged.

Given the doubt about the identity of this object in the past, I have 
uploaded an image to the Files section of CVnet-discussion.
