PT And: possible superhumps

   Kyoto observations (Ohshima-san) confirmed that this object was still
bright (mag about 17.2).  Although the weather condition was not favorable,
there appear to be modulations (~0.2 mag) which can be attributed to
superhumps.  The inferred period was about 0.060 d, but these properties
need to be confirmed.  Further observations are encouraged!
