Another young eruptive star. (I haven't marked it with a red line, as I didn't want to sully this image. Check out the AAVSO VSP if you are interested.)

Time stated is UT.

V350 Cep measured as V = 16.03

Check star (AAVSO 000-BKL-923; ref V = 13.141) measured as V = 13.22. I am not surprised by this difference, as the brightness of this check star is actually outside the range (V = 14 - 17) used to photometrically reduce the image.
