   As informed below, PR Her is undergoing a rare bright outburst!
The quiescent magnitude is reported to be 21, and this object is
most likely a WZ Sge-type dwarf nova (known maximum was 14.0p).
All sorts of observations are encouraged!  Accurate astrometry
of the outbursting object is also needed.

	outburst? - confirmed!

Indeed, I take image about 5 minutes ago (due a haze and pollution star is
Well placed for imaging for now so I manually slew scope). Looks that star
about 13.4CR on my image (date 2011-11-22 20:10 UT).

Best regards,
