The hard X-ray observation took place, and now we have a pretty
well-covered optical light curve from 2 days before to 2 days after.
Bravo! That specifies the timing of the binary very well, and now we
just have to wait for the analysis of the X-ray data - to reveal the
shock temperature and therefore the mass of the white dwarf.
So that wraps up the 2018 campaign on HU Aqr. I was very pleasantly
surprised by the data quality on such a faint star.
