   According to Ian Miller (via BAAVSS alert), the SU UMa-type dwarf nova
RX J1715.6+6856 (171541.77 +685643.0) is undergoing an outburst.
The object underwent a superoutburst in 2009 August, but the only later
part was observed (superhumps with a period of 0.0708 d were recorded).
The current outburst may well be a superoutburst.
