The helium atmosphere white dwarf EC 20058-5234 (QU Tel, WD 2006-523) is the second brightest pulsating DB white dwarf; the class prototype GD 358 is the brightest. This object was discovered during the Edinburgh Cape survey of faint blue stars (Stobie et al., 1997) and its properties were first reported by Koen et al. (1995).
