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.
