R CrB is now visible with binoculars for the first time since 2007.  As of the evening of Oct 11 it could be seen with 10×50’s (from Brum) at magnitude 8.8.  The rise at the moment is ~0.1 mag every 2 days, but this could change of course in the coming days/weeks.    

This looks as if it could be the recovery we have waited 7 years for.
