After Jeremy Shears' excellent webinar of 1st July on the subject of SS Cygni,  I took advantage of a brief clear spell (I was setting up for the comet but clouds rolled in) to nab a quick image. With a modified camera and IDAS filter, no estimate was attempted but the dwarf nova is clearly on the up again.
