OT J002656.6+284933: superhump period (longest Psh in SU UMa-type DNe)
Tamas Tordai has reported new observations.
The superhump period has been confirmed to be
0.13305(3) d. This is the longest superhump period
recorded in SU UMa-type dwarf novae and this is
the first time in 35 years to break this record!
Superhumps in TU Men are notoriously difficult
to observe, and please concentrate on this object
to record the full course of the superoutburst
and subsequent phases.
