HT Cam : Short outburst

On July 13, M. Reszelski reported a rare outburst of HT Cam at 13.3mag. The object is a system with a short orbital period (below the period gap). Some authors consider the object as a candidate of a intermediate polar. The last reported outburst occurred in 2000 September detected by T. Kinnunen (vsnet-campaign 996). The outburst was quickly faded as shown by observations on July 14 (vsnet-campaign-dn 986, vsnet-campaign-ip 56). The duration of the outburst is again very short.
