Hi CBAers,

Tom Krajci found CR Boo in superoutburst last night, and superhumping 
away.  Though it's slightly early in the Boo observing season, it's a 
great opportunity to get an early start, and at +8 degrees dec, the star 
is available for all hemispheres.  Fire away!  Tom, could you send full 
information on the comparison star?

Just to carve out some room in the menu, the BK Lyn soldiers can take a 
break.  It's great to see those large-amplitude humps night after 
night... and indeed, this year's BK Lyn coverage will be re-writing some 
books - but the 60 days have *perhaps* taught us everything we're going 
to learn.  In the next two days I'll evaluate several of the other stars 
on our menu: CP Pup, DW UMa, BH Lyn, at least.  Some of the others will 
take a little longer - you guys have been sending a lot of data!
