Subject: [vsnet-alert 3718] TmzV36 very rare outburst

CCD magnitudes obtained by P. Schmeer, Bischmisheim, Germany:

TmzV36  (UG:)
TmzV36  991113.536  180:C  Scp
TmzV36  991114.535  179C   Scp
TmzV36  991117.528  147C   Scp
Sequence:   USNO-A2.0 (red magnitudes)
Instrument: IRO (0.5-m RCT + AP-8)

This likely cataclysmic variable is undergoing its second ever
recorded outburst. The only previously known brightening occurred
in 1994 November (vsnet-obs 10504, see below).
Robert Fried took several images of TmzV36 last night at my request.
The (blue) object is visible at mag 14.9 on his R-band image taken
on Nov. 18.456 UT (same sequence as above).

Data from USNO-A2.0: 091650.693 +284943.07 (2000.0) 17.4 18.8

Time-resolved photometry (and spectroscopy) during the current outburst
is very urgently required.
