AQ CMi fading

We obesrved AQ CMi with TRISPEC/KANATA on 31 Jan and 1 Feb.  
The object is rapidly fading.

YYYYMMDD (UT)   mag.  err.
20080131.58456 15.03V 0.01
20080201.39832 16.01V 0.03

The fading rate is reminiscent of a normal outburst, 
rather than superoutbursts. 
While the outburst is possibly a normal one, 
follow-up observations are encouraged since it might be 
a precursor to a genuine supermaximum.
