[vsolj-alert 685] 1E 1719.1-1946 at supermaximum?

The dwarf nova 1E 1719.1-1946 was still bright (mag 15) on an
unfiltered CCD image taken with the IRO on Apr. 20.435 UT, and
I would bet several million dollars (if I had them) that the
current outburst is a supermaximum.
The only previously observed outburst was detected by me on a 
1999 Oct. 11.098 (UT) IRO image (vsnet-alert 3571), but contrary
to the current brightening this previous one was very short.
