Garradd, Loomberah, N.S.W., write: "Analysis of CCD continuous photometry of N Mus 1998 through wide-band filters during 15 nights in Jan.-Feb. reveals a periodic oscillation. The period is either 0.16930 +/- 0.00015 day or its 1-day alias of 0.20380 +/- 0.00025 day. The semiamplitude of the variation is about 0.03 mag. Most of the observations were carried out during the transition phase of the nova.
