V342 Cen : The first outburst detected visually

R. Stubbings reported the first visually recorded outburst of V342 Cen at 14.4mag on January 28. R. Stubbings commented that the position agrees more with the ROSAT ID. (11h07 15.4 -55 57' 40") and it's interesting to see that no star is shown on the DSS images but present on the USNO-A2.0 data, which indicates a large-amplitude dwarf nova (amplitude exceeding 6 mag?) or other kind of CV with large light variation (vsnet-campaign 720). The outburst continued at least on January 31 (vsnet-campaign-dn 437, 448).
