Abstract (from CDS):
Following posting on the Central Bureau's unconfirmed-objects webpage, L. Buzzi (Varese, Italy) reports that his unfiltered CCD image taken with a 60-cm reflector on (presumably) Oct. 5 shows the variable at mag 14.7 and position end figures 43s.51, 14".3. Buzzi also measures red mag 18.2 and position end figures 43s.42, 14".9 from a Palomar Sky Survey (POSS) image taken on 1991 Aug. 30.175 UT, and position end figures 43s.39, 14".7 from a POSS photograph taken on 1993 July 1.332. A. Oksanen, Muurame, Finland, writes that the variable appeared at mag 15.3 with a smooth 0.2-mag variation on presumed-V-band images taken on Oct. 8, also measuring position end figures 43s.57, 14".1; he has posted an image of the variable at http://murtoinen.dyndns.org/ccd/VarDra2008/VarDra2008_20081008C.jpg. R. A. Koff (Bennett, CO, U.S.A.) also reports a photometric amplitude of about 0.2 mag, with average mag 15.6 and position end figures 43s.53, 13".9 on Oct. 8/9.
