Dear Colleagues,

we are doing time-resolved photometry on this OT, remotely using the 14" 
unit part of the Virtual Telescope robotic system, Italy.

The star clearly shows superhumps, with a a full amplitude of about 0.25 
mag. So, this OT is a new cataclysmic variable, belonging to the SU UMa 
class .

Observations are ongoing, we wil provide an estimate for Psh later on.
