OT J112441.8+365842 = Catalina transient

 CRTS detected a transient (CSS110116:112442+365842).
 Since this transient is very red, this transient might be
not a CV. However, this transient may be a rather unusual one
since the last brightening (2006 spring) appears to last ~
dozens days, though more than two bursts may be included. 
Though such outburst property (rare and long) is similar 
to dwarf nova outburst if the color is ignored, the 
amplitude (~2 magn) is too small if this transient is 
a dwarf nova showing rare outbursts.

As one possibility, a dwarf nova with near comparison is
suspected. If so, color can be interpreted as the one of
the comparison.
