I've caught up with the analysis of the CR Boo and GW Lib data. CR Boo
is up to its usual (well, common anyway) hijinks, ramping up and down on
a timescale of about a day. The high-state "superoutbursts" are just
too short to permit very sensitive periodic-signal study. It'll be a
good study - sixty days worth - but it's time to end it.
The best southern object now is definitely GW Lib, which is flashing a
powerful 2.1 hour photometric wave. Perfectly placed now for a
Likewise for MV Lyr, usually around 12.7 or so, and just recently
dropped 2 mag or more. For years we've wanted to get orbital light
curves just after a transition to a faint state. Now's the chance!
