SDSS J081207.63+131824.4: superhump period

   We have received observations from Maehara-san and Nakajima-san.
The superhumps were still clearly visible.  The best superhump period
from these observations is 0.086956(5) d, though other aliases are
still viable.  This dwarf nova has a long superhump period, relatively
rare in recently discovered as new transients.  The known light curve
(Catalina) seems to suggest relatively low outburst frequency for
this superhump period.  Further observations are strongly encouraged.
