   Congratulations!  I was just writing on this object and saw this message.
There seems to be some indication of early superhumps? (double maxima?)

The object is located at:
02 00 25.40 +44 10 18.7 (CBAT's unconfirmed observations page)

And has a GSC-II counterpart
02 00 25.44	+44 10 19.1	j=21.16

   So, the outburst amplitude is more than 8 mag!

   Please use the name OT_J020025.4+441019 for reporting.
