Megrez 90 with 0.8x FR

I received a circular to say that this star had gone into super outburst. It was normally of magnitude in the range 18 - 20.6 and was discovered to now be magnitude between 11 and 12. I was lucky enough to find it and confirm that observation and then carried out time-series photometry on as many times as the sky was clear.
