OT J232727.2+085539: superhump period

   Gianluca Masi has reported further observations.  Ordinary
superhumps are growing.  The period determined from two-night
observations is 0.05302(4) d.  This is the shortest record
of WZ Sge-type dwarf novae!

   The period is consistent with the earlier period (early
superhumps) of 0.05279(3) d.  We need more observations
to confirm the small fractional superhump excess.
