We report additional optical photometry of the 2016 eruption (ATel #9848) of the rapidly recurring nova M31N 2008-12a (Henze et al. 2014, 2015a, 2015b; Darnley et al. 2014, 2015, 2016). Our unfiltered observations were obtained with the Half-Meter-Telescope (HMT) at the Xingming Observatory, a 508mm aperture, with a focal length of 2052mm using a QHY11 CCD camera. For additional multi-wavelength coverage of this eruption so far see ATels #9852, #9853, #9857, #9861, #9864, #9865, #9872, #9874, #9881, and #9883.
