Any plans to put a sequence together for PNV J17292916+0054043? I have V band images and can continue to follow if I have a sequence.

Thanks -- Brian

PNV J17292916+0054043: likely new WZ Sge-type dwarf nova

   Maeda-san has reported photometric observations.
The data showed modulations resembling early superhumps.
According to Ayani-san, this object has been spectroscopically
confirmed to be a dwarf nova.  He II was also in emission,
which is sometimes seen in WZ Sge-type dwarf novae
in the early stage.  Further observations are highly requested.
