The Center for Backyard Astrophysics (CBA) is a multi-longitude network of small photometric telescopes, owned by talented amateurs, who study periodic phenomena in Cataclysmic Variables (CVs). The CBA is among the leading examples of successful partnerships between professional and amateur enthusiasts, producing vast amounts of high-quality variable star data. This poster paper highlights observational CBA results obtained on DV UMa, a most interesting eclipsing UGSU-type dwarf nova, that has been intensively monitored during its April 1997 superoutburst.
