And there's this one too!  Not eclipsing, but of substantial interest 
due to the (like) rarity of outburst.  A good post-midnight object after 
1502+33 sets.

3.4hrs of unfiltered photometry of IL Vul tonight shows what appear to 
be 0.1
mag superhumps with period ~0.075d on top of a slowly fading trend. The 
magnitude of IL Vul during the run was 16.1.

It therefore looks likely that IL Vul is a UGSU-type dwarf nova.
