Forums Variable Stars AY Lac fading

I had it 15.0 visual this morning (13th).  

I was hoping that it might do more (we have waited rather a long time to see it after all!).   I don’t see any evidence for superhump like features in the light curve at all.   Perhaps it might surprise us with a second outburtst once it’s faded further.

One of the earlier interpretations of it’s class is Recurrent Nova.   Maybe?
