This time I observed only SS Cyg because I have now observed practically all stars in my observing programme quite recently. Also there was some cloud interference and I was quite tired because of staying up so much during recent nights. Only one observation from last night because of these reasons. SS Cyg is still in it’s maximum, but it is too early to say anything about the nature of this particular eruption.
