Some really beautiful light curves of KP Cas rolling in now - a 
large-amplitude superhumper.  But don't leave V1251 Cyg and UW Tri 
unexamined!  As far as we can tell right now, each is a very rare 
erupter - a WZ Sge star, more or less - and no one yet knows which is 
going to cough up its secrets more readily.  Catch 'em while they're bright!

Bob Rea is firing away on RX0232-37 and ES Cet, and we could really use 
more coverage.  They're faint, but the Moon's outa the way and the 
season's good.
