The Nova observed UTC 20191211.9590
at visual magnitude 10.9mV.
Amazing sight in my 16inch f 12 Cas with 21mm Pentax XL eyepiece.
Bright Moon was rising and temperature was slightly
below freezing.
This Nova is really in action again...
best wishes for clear sky

It is nice to see on AAVSO website
there were at least seven observers
reporting on this latest Nova brightening.
Congrats to everyone...

Indeed, and between you and me, the visual observers made a nice and precise job!

Look at the 6th maximum zoom here:

It appears our dwarf nova has again started to fade. I was able to image it on 12/19 (mag 12.3) and 12/20 (mag 14.0) from an image affected by wind. Hope to get a better image tonight.

I just imaged our Dwarf Nova this evening (12/21) and estimated it's mag at 14.4, using comp stars 140 and 147. It continues to fade.

The latest light curve showing this dwarf nova is now below 15th mag. Will it have another outburst?
