1 Otero, Sebastian Alberto VSP Note: 17.7 mag. star 1.9" to the NE and 18.8 mag. star 3.1" to the NW.
2 Schmeer, Patrick The 13.5 outburst maximum was revised to 15 p. using a more recent sequence from The Astronomer (1997JBAA..107...65M). Recorded amplitude is likely reduced by light contamination from 2MASS J02122976+5705193 (V= 17.7; sep. 1.9", likely a reddened early type star) and 2MASS J02122929+5705201 (V= 18.8; sep. 3.1").
