GS Cet: time-resolved photometry required

GS Cet (UGWZ:)

Orbital period: 0.0558 d (80.4 min)

GS Ceti in the International Variable Star Index:
https://www.aavso.org/vsx/index.php?view=detail.top&oid=132026

Identifications:
SDSS J005050.88+000912.7 (see Stanek's message above)
USNO-B1.0 0901-0009245 (B1= 20.17, B2= 20.61, R2= 20.02 mag)
GSC2.3 NB4X006018 (F= 20.49, j= 21.31 mag)
GALEX J005050.8+000913 (FUV= 21.82, NUV= 21.26 mag)

Orbital period and outburst amplitude (> 7 mag) are typical for a WZ Sge-type dwarf nova.

Time-resolved photometry is urgently required.

Clear skies,
Patrick
