USNO 1288-0184031 is a 16th magnitude star in the constellation Lynx. I discovered it to be variable on images taken on April 8, 2014. Two nights of observations yielded a very noisey lightcurve with a small amplitude. From those observations no definite period could be derived. Observations were made on several nights during 2015. Even so, nothing certain could be deduced about a period, other than it is longer than 13 hours. This is turning out to be a very challenging object and more observations are planned for 2016.
