Seiichi Yoshida, MISAO Project; Nobuo Ohkura, Okayama, Japan; and Ken-ichi Kadota, Ageo, Saitama, Japan, discovered a new variable star MisV1061.
It was picked up by Seiichi Yoshida from the candidates of new variable stars detected by the PIXY system 2 from images taken by Nobuo Ohkura comparing with images taken by Ken-ichi Kadota, and confirmed by Ken-ichi Kadota.
The identification is researched by Taichi Kato (Kyoto University), John Greaves (the United Kingdom), and Seiichi Yoshida.
Kazuhiro Nakajima's observations revealed it is an Algol-type (EA) eclipsing variable with V-band variations of 12.14 mag at maximum, 12.81 mag at primary minimum, 12.55 mag at secondary minimum, and period of 3.0421 days (IBVS 5600).
