MASTER OT J161308.18+260953.3 discovery - PSN in 0.46" from SDSS galaxy with rgal=21.186
MASTER-IAC auto-detection system ( Lipunov et al., "MASTER Global Robotic Net", Advances in Astronomy, 2010, 30L )
discovered OT source at (RA, Dec) = 16h 13m 08.18s +26d 09m 53.3s on 2017-02-16.12905 UT.
The OT unfiltered magnitude is 18.0m (mlimit=18.6m).
The OT is seen in 3 images. There is no minor planet at this place.
We have reference image without OT on 2016-02-13.21289 UT with unfiltered magnitude limit 20.2m.
There is SDSS galaxy with rmag=21.186 in
In this Scenario it can be Superluminous SN
There is no OT on last MASTER image on 2016-12-25 01:46:23UT with mlim=18.6
Spectral observations are required.
