Kazuhiro Nakajima revealed that MisV1061 is an Algol-type 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.
MisV1061, R.A. 21h00m17s.97, Decl. +27o52'56".1 (J2000.0), is a new variable star discovered in the course of the MISAO Project from Nobuo Ohkura's unfiltered CCD images on June 19, 2000, comparing with Ken-ichi Kadota's unfiltered CCD images on July 24, 1999.
Nakajima observed it on 8 nights between July 21 and Aug. 19 in 2003 with 0.25-m f/5 Schmidt-Cassegrain and CV-04 CCD with V filter, and caught four minima.
The period is derived as 3.0421 days from these minima.
Here is the light curve of MisV1061 from total 730 observations. Comparison star is TYC2-2180.0228.1, R.A. 21h00m13s.9, Decl. +27o51'47" (2000.0), 11.65 mag(V). The phases on the figure were calculated by the ephemeris:
