1RXS J053234.9+624755: prominent short-term variations
Nakajima-san reported his time-series observations of
1RXS J053234.9+624755 on 28 and 31 Jan to VSOLJ.
The light curves are filled by short-term variations
(possibly superhumps?) with very large amplitudes.
He commented that their amplitude reached 1.4 mag (!) on 31 Jan.
The possible brightening on 30 Jan reported in [vsnet-alert 9865]
are probably a part of those huge short-term variations.
The nature of these variations is unclear: They may be small
rebrightenings or variations related to an eccentric accretion
disk (namely, superhumps or late superhumps).
If they are a kind of superhumps, their large amplitude implies
a quite low contribution of the emission from an inner accretion disk.
Follow-up (time-series) observations are encouraged.
