Abstract: The last few years have been marked by discoveries and studies of the powerful outbursts of the WZ Sge-type dwarf novae with small telescopes. These objects are characterized by very short orbital periods (mostly 80—90 min), strong and rare superoutbursts and very specific light curve features — superhumps. We carried out the multicolour observations of some WZ Sge-type systems during their superoutbursts, fadings, rebrightenings (if they were detected) and in quiescence using small telescopes (60-, 125-cm) of the Crimean station of Moscow State University and the Astromonical Institute of the Slovak Academy of Sciences. A short review of the WZ Sge-type objects, having been observed in these observatories, is presented. Possibility of good investigation of CVs with small telescopes, equipped with CCD-cameras, is very relevant.
