EG Aqr is a cataclysmic viariable, that is a binary with an accreting
white dwarf star. It was observed as being in (super)outburst on Nov 8,
2006; this is the 3rd known (super)outburst for this system (previous
ones in 1958 and 1959) (IAU Circulars CBET734 and CBET736).

target during the 2006 outburst.
The observations were carried out with a 203mm SC telescope, a Clear
filter and a SBIG ST7E camera (KAF401E CCD). Each exposure has a duration
of 60s. 285 images were obtained.
The comparison star is GSC 5822-00406 with an assumed unfiltered magnitude
of 12.000 and the check star is GSC 5833-01012 with a standard deviation

Red: EG Aqr, Blue: the check star shifted by -0.3 mag.
The error bars are +/- the 1 sigma statistical uncertainties.
The outburst is over. The check star is shifted by +3.0 mag.
