ASASSN-18ey = MAXI J1820+070 time-series photometry
Itoh-san and Josch Hambsch has reported observations
of this X-ray transient. Itoh-san recorded the rising part.
There have been no major (violent) variations as seen
in V404 Cyg. The light curve, however, probably showed
small fluctuations. This X-ray transient is probably
the one of the brightest (in optical) in these decades.
Observations at all time scales are requested to
detect various kinds of variations. We may be able to
detect superhumps, too.
