Time-resolved photometry and spectroscopy of this possible WZ Sge-type dwarf nova are urgently required.

Clear skies,

Thank you Patrick, you make

Thank you Patrick, you make my day, ...early...

A few minutes after your message I woke up and at UTC 1h53 I observed this "new star", my visual estimation was 11.6 using the Tycho2 catalogue.

As usual I did a sketch of the field (attached) and pursue some estimations of other objects such as the SN in NGC6946 (with mag +/-13)
