The latest outburst of V1028 Cyg occurred on 1996 Aug. 7, when J. Pietz detected the star still rising to maximum. After attaining the maximum of mv=13.5 on Aug. 8, the star started to fade rapidly. Preceded by this short outburst, the star rose up again on Aug. 11, and entered a stage of 11-day lasting superoutbust.
The 1995 July to August superoutburst was quite intensively studied by the Ouda team (Kyoto University), first revealing this object to be an SU UMa-type dwarf nova phenomenologically bridging the usual SU UMa-type and WZ Sge-type dwarf novae. A more detailed discussion is given in Baba et al. (1997, PASJ submitted).
Rapid fading of V1028 Cyg
The SU UMa-type dwarf nova V1028 Cyg has apparently faded rapidly from a rare outburst (vsnet-alert 911, http://www.kusastro.kyoto-u.ac.jp/vsnet/Mail/vsnet-alert/msg00911.html). The present outburst thus seems to be a normal outburst. Close monitoring is still needed to see whether this outburst triggers a superoutburst as in the 1996 August case.
