V2051 Oph: Some outbursts of the eclipsing SU UMa-type dwarf nova

R. Stubbings reported the eclipsing SU UMa-type dwarf nova V2051 Oph experienced a bright outburst at 11.6mag on April 16 (vsnet-alert 4632). The observation on 2 June by P. Williams showed this eclipsing SU UMa-type dwarf nova was slightly brighter than quiescence (14.3 mag on 2 June) (vsnet-campaign 161), however, the observation by A. Pearce, >14.5mag on 2 June, indicates it was no major outburst (vsnet-campaign 165). As reported by P. Williams on July 22, this eclipsing SU UMa type dwarf nova occurred an outburst (likely normal) (vsnet-campaign 387). The fading trend from this outburst was reported on July 24 (vsnet-campaign-dn 61). The object, which had faded on July 24, brightened again on July 31 (vsnet-campaign-dn 77). According to R. Stubbings on October 27, V2051 Oph experienced the other outburst. The brightness suggests a superoutburst, however it faded rather rapidly. On November 5, R. Stubbings and P. Nelson reported the magnitudes fainter than 12.2 and 12.5, respectively (vsnet-campaign-dn 237).
