Joe Ulowetz's data last night showed BK Lyn at a bright supermax, 
V=13.7.  And this "clear" magnitude usually underrates the actual V 
brightness by about 0.2 mag.  Lynx is not an ideal location on April 
nights... but BK Lyn sure is an ideal target!  Also, we don't have all 
that much data in the brightest phases of a supermax.

It's true I'm getting greedy; we already have ~950 hours of coverage 
this year.  But I promise never to be greedy again.  Ever.  Fire up 
those telescopes in the days/weeks to come!
