OT J012059.59+325545.0: rapid fading!

   We have just received a report from Enrique de Miguel.
The object remained bright last night (observations in Japan).
More analysis will follow later.

Comments:     Clean skies.
              8 days have passed since last run. Object is 0.76 mag
              fainter. It seems that it has entered the rapid decline
              stage: on average, it has faded 0.133 mag during 
              tonight's run, which implies a fading rate of
              ~0.58 mag/d.  
              The amplitude of the superhumps are seen to be of 
              slightly smaller amplitude (~0.10-0.12).
              There is a clear increase in Psh, with
              Psh = 0.05783(3).
