Further to below, I continued follow-up observations of ASASSN-20gd. Last night's observations (June 17/18, 2020), obtaind at CBA Extremadura Observatory, now show the emergence of regular full-grown superhumps with an amplitude of 0.21 mag. Using the ANOVA, Lomb-Scargle, Generalized-Lomb-Scargle and PDM methods (Peranso 3.0, under development) methods, the combined superhump period is 0.0562 +/- 0.0004d. The object was at mag 15.3 (CV) on Jun 18th.

Subject: (cba:chat) ASASSN-20gd: new SU UMa-type dwarf nova
I have just finished analysing my unfiltered CCD observations of ASASSN-20gd, obtained during 2 consecutive nights, June 12/13 and June 13/14 at CBA Extremadura Observatory, using a 0.40-m f/5.1 telescope and SX-46 CCD camera.
On both nights, low amplitude superhumps (0.07 mag) were visible, establishing ASASSN-20gd as a new SU UMa-type dwarf nova. Combining my own observations with June 12/13 and 13/14 observations of Josch Hambsch, I performed a period analysis using the ANOVA, Lomb-Scargle, Generalized-Lomb-Scargle and PDM methods (Peranso 3.0, under development) methods. This yields a combined superhump period of 0.0559 +/- 0.0004d. The object was at mag 14.9 (CV) on Jun 14th. It is declining in brightness at approx. 0.14 mag/d.
More pronounced superhumps may still develop in the days to come, so continued observations of this object are highly recommended.
I will send my observations to AAVSO, CBA and VSNET for further analysis.
