   VSNET has received 266 observations since 2003, but no outburst
has been detected.  This is perfectly in agreement with the above

   The second recorded outburst (1989) was most likely a superoutburst,
with a duration more than 6 days.  The actual maximum may have been
brighter, as expected from DV UMa observations.

   The following conversion constants may be helpful:
