HS 1804+6753 is a recently discovered deeply eclipsing dwarf nova (cf. HT Cas,DV UMa, S10932,DO Leo). The object was first detected by the Einstein survey (= MS 1804+6753), and was independently discovered as a UV-excess object by the Kiso survey (Noguchi et al. 1982, PASJ 34, 407). However, the importance of this object was not noticed until Barwig et al. (1994, in Abstracts of IAU Symp. 165, Compact Stars in Binary Systems p.89) revealed its nature as a member of eclipsing dwarf novae, from which a wealth of our basic understandings in cataclysmic variables and accretion disks has been derived.
A detailed study of the accretion disk and the secondary star is presented by Billington et al. 1996 (MNRAS 278, 673).
