The variable faded from (unfiltered) mag 15.25
(average) to mag 15.69 over the course of 1 day, and
shows no evident periodic modulations, as the above
figures illustrate (I tried several period analysis
methods in Peranso).
In total, I collected nearly 500 CCD observations.
The present outburst most likely is not a
superoutburst, and - combined with my observations
2004 - I suspect that Var79 Peg is probably an
UGSS-type dwarf nova.
End of August outburst
Another outburst of Var79 Peg was announced by
Rob Jansuzewski on Aug 29.9, 2005 at visual
magnitude 14.3 (CVnet-outburst). I decided to spend
a few hours on this target, on Aug 30/31 2005, to
follow up on my CCD observations earlier this month
(see above). The resulting light curve is presented
below. Clearly, this was a brighter outburst, but
there still is no evidence of superhumps.
Modulations with an amplitude of 0.1 mag are
present, but very irregular in shape. It adds again
more evidence to my assumption that this is likely
an UGSS-type dwarf nova.
