CE-315 : New ultrashort period cataclysmic variable

According to astro-ph/0103355, M. T. Ruiz et al. discovered a ultra-short period CV (helium CV like GP Com), CE-315. The binary period is 65.1+/-0.7 min, which seems to make the system something intermediate between helium CVs and V485 Cen-like system (vsnet-campaign 823).

Since the object is expected to show outbursts as in other similar systems, we encourage observers to monitor this object closely, and report if any brightening is caught.
