We performed time resolved photometry on this source, remotely using the
robotic 14" unit part of the Virtual Telescope in Italy. The run lasted 4 hours.
The source was at mag. 15.5R (unfiltered).
It shows beautiful double-peaked superhumps, with alternate, slightly different
amplitudes of about 0.15 mags.
A period search provided a candidate of Psh=1.52(3) hours. Apparently, peaks are
not exactly Psh/2 apart in time.
Data sent to Kyoto for analysis.
