Dear colleagues,

I have just finished analysing my unfiltered CCD observations of CRTS
J091245.9-034916, obtained on 2021, Mar 31/Apr 01 at CBA Belgium
Observatory, using a 0.40-m f/10.0 telescope and QHY268M CMOS camera under
clear skies. 

Regular superhumps with an amplitude of 0.33 mag are clearly visible in the
resulting light curve, establishing CRTS J091245.9-034916 as a new SU
UMa-type dwarf nova. A period analysis using the ANOVA, Lomb-Scargle,
Generalized-Lomb-Scargle and PDM methods (Peranso 3.0), yields a combined
superhump period of 0.0677 +/- 0.0007d. The object was at mag V = 15.1 on
Mar 31st.

I will send my observations to AAVSO, CBA and VSNET for further analysis.

Best regards
