I have just concluded the analysis of tonight’s 2016, Nov 28/29 unfiltered CCD photometry session of ASASSN-16nq. Observations were made at CBA Belgium Observatory, using a 0.35-m f/6.3 telescope and STT-3200ME CCD camera under very clear skies. The resulting light curve clearly shows the presence of superhumps with an amplitude of 0.37 mag. A period analysis using the ANOVA, PDM and Lomb-Scargle methods (Peranso), yields a combined superhump period of 0.0799 +/- 0.0005d, hence establishing this object as a new SU UMa-type dwarf nova. The object was at mag 14.8 (unfiltered).
Observations will be sent to CBA and VSNET for further analysis.
