CY Coronae Borealis (UG)

Bright outburst confirmed (brightest mag. ever recorded):

Time-resolved and multiband photometry are strongly recommended.

CY CrB sequence

Observers should be aware of some issues with the present AAVSO sequence for CY CrB:

The 12.136V comp star is saturated in Arne's photometry of this field.  The 12.624V comp may be a little saturated as well.  I noticed this when I was attempting to measure some recent images of mine and was comparing this sequence with a larger set of APASS mags for this field.  The rest of the current sequence looks good except for the 14.260V comp star.  This star is a close double and should be avoided.

The APASS V mag for the 12.136V comp star is 11.75V.  This is means that CY CrB's V mag probably peaked in the upper 11's rather than the low 12's.
