Oh, and NSV 1485 is very deserving of attention too!  Another recent 
discovery which so far has not received good coverage. Tonny and Tom 
found superhumps a few years ago, but the present outburst (if a super) 
offers the best opportunity yet to track superhumps over the full course 
of eruption.

2000 coords are 4 12 36.9 +69 29 06.  There's a 15th mag star just east 
of the variable.

Very flashy baubles in the northern sky.  How can you resist?

If, that is, they're truly superoutbursts.  The first superhump tells 
the story.
