Dear colleagues,
I have just processed my observations of ASASSN-14gg from 2016, Aug 13/14, which was an unfiltered CCD photometry session. Observations were made at CBA Belgium Observatory,  using a 0.35-m f/6.3 telescope and STT-3200ME CCD camera, under clear skies (with moonlight). The resulting light curve clearly shows the presence of superhumps, establishing this target as a new SU UMa-type dwarf nova. The amplitude is approx 0.18 mag. A period analysis using the ANOVA, Lomb-Scargle and PDM methods (Peranso), yields a combined period of 0.0603 +/- 0.0010d. The object currently is at mag 14.35 (unfiltered).

Further observations are evidently encouraged.

Observations will be sent to CBA and VSNET for further analysis.

Best regards
