OT J112441.8+365842 = Catalina transient
CRTS detected a transient (CSS110116:112442+365842).

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
