FT Cam very faint

Hi all,

It seems that FT Cam is very faint. I had it fainter than 18.3 a couple of nights ago using the COAST telescope on Tenerife. Looking at the LCG FT Cam hasn't been seen that faint before.

Can someone confirm this?

I imaged it last night in V (20 minutes CDK24, light polluted site). It measures at 18.6 as S/R of about 10. I submitted the observation to the database. I see that is the faintest ever recorded. In looking at the light curve it seems many outbursts are being missed.
