Dear CBAers,

After a sluggish few months, the dwarf novae are rising up to take 
command (for a while) of cataclysmic-variable glamor in the night sky. 
Three unstudied and quite interesting dwarf novae have jumped into 
superoutburat: SDSS0839+28, V1032 Oph, and V591 Cen.  Great pickings!... 
and the dwarf novae, unlike many of the CVs we study, pretty much demand 
attention on their schedule, not on ours.  These stars are all new, and 
at least two are very distinctive (eclipsing, and a good WZ Sge 
candidate).  Whichever suits your horizon/latitude/weather... is likely 
to be a great winner!


Thanks to Enrique de Miguel Agustino for the energy, and uncanny nose, 
to find these new guys!
