OT J232727.2+085539 possible periodicity

   Crimean Astroph. Obs. team (Oksana Antonyuk, relayed by E. Pavlenko)
and Kiyota-san have reported observations.  There are some hint of
periodic variations, and the strongest periodicity is at 0.0529(1) d.
The amplitudes, however, were small (0.03 mag).  The profile was not
typical of early superhumps but was singly peaked.  The fading rate,
however, is consistent with that of an early fading stage of a WZ Sge-type
dwarf nova.  Further observations are very encouraged.
