SDSS J160501.35+203056.9: possible superhumps
Kiyota-san (and earlier by the Kyoto team) have reported observations.
The object is still in bright state, and is better observable
in the morning sky.
Kiyota-san's recent data probably suggest the presence of 0.2 mag
superhumps, although it is very difficult to determine the period
due to the short visibility. Observations at other longitudes are
YYYYMMDD(UT) mag observer
20101121.367 120C (K. Itagaki)
20101125.735 130C (Ian Miller)
20101201.847 13.64C (Seiichiro Kiyota)
20101203.841 13.69C (Seiichiro Kiyota)
20101204.843 13.85C (Seiichiro Kiyota)
As judged from the light curve, the initial faster fading (November)
corresponded to a stage with early superhumps of a WZ Sge-type outburst.
