The star at end figures 20s.75, 44".6 mentioned by Kojima-san is USNO-B1.0 1375-0494413 (APASS magnitudes V= 13.98, B= 15.55, B-V= +1.57); it is a red dwarf (M4.5Ve) and an X-ray source (RX J2122.3+4730). According to the latest available ASAS-SN Sky Patrol observations (Shappee et al. 2014ApJ...788...48S and Kochanek et al. 2017PASP..129j4502K) this star was at V= 14.0 mag on 2018 Apr. 10.629 and 11.624 UT. Since 2014 December it was never observed brighter than V= 13.8 mag by the Sky Patrol - with one exception (outlier?): 2015 Oct. 8.382 UT, V= 13.2 mag; light curve at https://asas-sn.osu.edu/light_curves/951b8d55-6073-49ff-bfd9-2483f8a93df8.
