OT J234440.5-001206 superhump period update

   Maehara-san, Josch Hambsch, Gianluca Masi, and Enrique de Miguel have
reported observations up to now.  As reported by Maehara-san, the object
has already entered its rapid decline stage of the superoutburst.
The mean superhump period has been 0.07665(2) d, without evidence of
period variation.  The lack of period variation and the fading of
the superoutburst likely indicate that we have been observing stage C
superhumps.  Future regular monitoring of outbursts and early detection
would be vital for determining the period evolution in this system.
