Dear CBAers,

This looks like a mighty interesting star.  Reasonably well placed in
the sky, bright, and a candidate for a more-than-usually-interesting
dwarf nova.

It's somewhat surprising that a star this faint would have a high proper
motion, so the star still needs confirmation.  Give it a try - and then
fire away with time series if it looks legit.  Itagaki is plenty
experienced, so it's a probable.
