Oops, I missed this one last night.  Now THIS is a star worth a great 
effort!  Crazy short period, nearly equatorial, decently bright, 
transiting in the fat part of the night... it's got everything.  Let's 
train some telescope power on this guy, and see if it's a super (a few 
days of coverage may reveal the periodic waves, in which case yes).

In 2009, some of our australite heavyweights (Berto, Greg Bolt, Bob Rea) 
got some pretty good data... and a popular comparison star was GSC 
05491-00796.  The J2000 position of the variable star is 10 28 42.9 -08 
19 27.
