The old nova X Ser is having another DN outburst.

While examining recent images made with MPO61, I noticed that X Ser was mag ~16.1V on 2024-02-19.41 UT and ~16.0V on 2024-02-23.40 UT.

For comparison, X Ser was mag~16.9-17.0V on 2024-02-06.45 UT, its typical quiescent brightness.

Note that these are eyeball estimates.  I'll measure the images in the next couple of days when I get a chance.
