The dwarf nova V1060 Cyg is undergoing an outburst as indicated by the following observations.
1997 Mar. 20.194 UT <15.6 G. Poyner 27.160 13.7 G. Poyner 29.146 14.4 G. PoynerPrevious outbursts of this star occurred in 1995 Aug. (mv=14.9), 1995 Oct. (mv=12.8, long outburst), 1996 Aug. (mv=13.1, long outburst), 1996 Nov. (mv=13.5, short outburst). Although the outburst pattern rather resembles that of an SU UMa-type dwarf nova, CCD observations by H. Baba (private communication) in 1996 Aug. seem to preclude this possibility.
