Dear CBAers,

Only a few nights have been obtained so far on this eclipsing 
superhumper.  It's admittedly poorly placed in the spring sky, but by 
splicing European and North American data we should be able to extract 
the main observational fact - namely the superhump period - with high 
precision.  Next year we can do a much more thorough campaign near 
minimum light, and derive the binary parameters.  I think this guy 
deserves the highest priority in the evening sky, even if the runs are 
pretty short.
