I managed to cover this star by time-resolved photometry for almost 6 hours,
remotely using the Virtual Telescope robotic facility. The sky was amazing.
The star was ~ mag. 14.3, unfiltered.
The resulting lightcurve clearly shows early superhumps with an estimated period
of 1.20(6) hours and an amplitude of 0.07 mags. The star showed a slow fading
trend during the run.
Further observations are encouraged to track the development of early superhumps
and emerging, ordinary superhumps.
Data sent to Kyoto for analysis.
