   The data seem to show a structured light curve (double-wave
modulations), and it is more likely early superhumps.

Hello Taichi, Ohshima,

See attached jpeg screen shot from uncalibrated images (Astrokolkhoz, 
southern New Mexico, AAVSONet telescope K35, Celestron 14, V filter, 
60-second images)

Are these superhumps?  It looks like it to me.  This is almost 2 hours 
coverage.  Amplitude is a bit more than 0.1 magnitude.

I hope folks west of me can continue coverage....
