AQ Eri : No confirmed superoutburst

On January 29, R. Stubbings detected an outburst (vsnet-campaign 726). Although the brightness indicates it was an superoutburst, the object rapidly faded, which indicates it was a normal one (vsnet-campaign 728). The time-series photometry on January 30 provided by S. Kiyota yields a flat light curve with a hint of some fluctuations (vsnet-campaign 732). As reported by P. A. Dubovsky on August 31, the object experienced the next outburst at 13.3mag (vsnet-campaign-dn 1451). (No follow-up confirmation was performed within a month, but the relatively faint magnitude implies it is also a normal one.) M. Simonsen detected another outburst at 14.0mag on November 22 (vsnet-campaign-dn 1929). The observation by the Kyoto team showed that the object was rapidly fading, indicating that the outburst is also a normal one (vsnet-campaign-dn 1930). After faded, the brightness remained somewhat above quiescence during a few days, (vsnet-campaign-dn 1951, but no rebrightening was observed.
