|The variable star HV 8484 = NSV 6052 was discovered by Luyten (1935), who announced
13.2 and 14.6 mag pg. The star was never studied in detail. The
authors of the ASAS-3 survey (Pojmanski, 2002) included it into the ASAS-3
variable star catalog as a MISC/SR variable.
The star is not red, with J = 11.530, H = 11.129, K = 10.978 in the 2MASS catalog
et al., 2003). I analyzed the ASAS-3 data and found that NSV 6052 was most probably
a UGSS type cataclysmic variable, with characteristic cycle length between 33 and
