1 Schmeer, Patrick The sixth recorded eruption was first detected on 2020 May 6, and probably began on May 2.9 UT 0.4 d (vsnet-alert 24266, 2020ATel13731....1P).
2 Otero, Sebastian Alberto VSP Note: 18.3 Vmag. star 1.6" to the NW and 18.9 Vmag. star 2.1" to the ESE.
3 Otero, Sebastian Alberto Also outbursts in 2010 and 2016. Previously identified as a brighter 18.3 Vmag. star (IRSF J05095823-7139519) which is 1.6" to its NW. Eclipse amplitude 0.5 in Ic and 1.5 in V. Quiescence magnitude out of eclipse is Ic ~19.2 and V ~19.6.
4 Otero, Sebastian Alberto Outbursts in 1968, 1990 and 2002. ASAS-3 detected an outburst on October 11, 2002 (JD 2452558.756) with V= 11.15, fading to V= 14.2 four days later. B-V at maximum 0.0 and at quiescence 1.05 with V-I(Gunn)= 0.73 (2004AJ....128.1606Z).
