DEFINITELY an interesting target.  7 magnitudes is the magic number...
worth a special effort to nail for as long as possible!

OT J112619.4+084651 = Catalina transient

   CRTS detected a very large amplitude dwarf nova (>7 mag)
CSS130106:112619+084651.  The object is a very good candidate
for a WZ Sge-type dwarf nova.  Observations are encouraged.

SDSS magnitudes: 22.20, 21.83, 21.84, 22.28, 21.31
(no neural net solution for Porb, SDSS i mag may be too faint - eclipsing??)

   No previous outburst was detected in CRTS.
