OT J012059.6+325545: still in outburst

   Maehara-san has reported new observations.  The object still remains
bright.  Superhumps were still present (amplitude 0.11 mag on Dec. 20).
There is a slight indication of a positive Pdot = +2.3(1.7)*10^(-5).
The relatively small Pdot value suggests a rather extreme WZ Sge-type
dwarf nova.  Although the lunar condition is not very favorable,
further continued observations are highly wanted.
