Dear colleagues,

I have just concluded the analysis of my 2018, Feb 12/13 unfiltered CCD photometry session of MASTER OTJ021211.74+475602.7 = ASASSN-15nt. Observations were made at CBA Belgium Observatory,  using a 0.40-m f/10.0 telescope and STT-3200ME CCD camera, under a very clear sky. The resulting light curve shows the presence of small superhumps with an amplitude of 0.033 mag. A period analysis – after detrending the light curve for a linear magnitude decline - using the ANOVA, Lomb-Scargle and PDM methods (Peranso), yields a combined (long) superhump period of 0.0986 +/- 0.0018d, hence establishing this object as a new SU UMa type dwarf nova. The object was at mag 14.05 (unfiltered) on Feb 12th.  


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

Best regards
