John Thorstensen reports that this novalike has dived into a low state. 
  There have no studies (that I know of) of this star in a low state - 
in fact I didn't even know it had very low states.  Anyway, it's pretty 
well placed for observation - it's 2344+43, or "And" in Downes et al.
I dunno yet how bright it is - maybe too faint.  It's not likely to be 
photometrically active; but photometry of VY Scl's at minimum is quite 
scarce... and it's worth a peek.
