LX Ser: Dwarf nova-type outbursts ?

The eclipsing novalike object LX Ser tends to vary in greater amplitudes than in recent years (vsnet-campaign 141). This may be a signature of weak dwarf nova-type activity. If the current activity leads to dwarf nova outbursts, this eclipsing system may provide a unique opportunity to investigate the disk structure of Z Cam-type dwarf nova.

LX Ser has been reported fainter (>15mag) since June 11. (vsnet-campaign 229).
