MASTER OT J202438.12-224741.0 discovery - new OT, no VIZIER data, Ampl>3.4m

MASTER-SAAO auto-detection system ( Lipunov et al., "MASTER Global Robotic Net", Advances in Astronomy, 2010, 30L ) discovered OT source at (RA, Dec) = 20h 24m 38.12s -22d 47m 41.0s on 2017-04-30.08943 UT.
The OT unfiltered magnitude is 18.6m (mlim=19.8).
The OT is seen in 3 images (2017-04-30 02:12:39,02:08:47,01:50:43UT).
We have reference image on 2017-03-20 02:05:13 with mlim=19.4, on2015-04-01.10850 UT with unfiltered mlim= 19.4m.
There is no known sources in VIZIER Spectral observations are required.

MASTER OT J091429.59-700150.4 discovery - dwarf nova outburst, Ampl>4.1m

MASTER-SAAO auto-detection system discovered OT source at (RA, Dec) = 09h 14m 29.59s -70d 01m 50.4s on 2017-04-27.89035 UT.
The OT unfiltered magnitude is 16.2m(mlim=19.8).
The OT is seen in 4 images. There is no minor planet at this place.
We have reference image on 2015-10-21.05554 UT with unfiltered mlim=20.3m,it means amplitude of current outburst is more then 4.1mag
Spectral observations are required.

MASTER OT J142907.93-434744.6 discovery - dwarf nova outburst, Ampl>5.1m

MASTER-SAAO auto-detection system discovered OT source at (RA, Dec) = 14h 29m 07.93s -43d 47m 44.6s on 2017-04-22.93185 UT.
The OT unfiltered magnitude is 16.9m (mlim=20.0).
The OT is seen in 3 images on 2017-04-22 22:21:52.229,22:33:03.047,22:45:44.705 with unfiltered m_OT=16.9, and on 3 images on 2017-04-23 20:55:31.66,21:47:27.783,21:51:26.006 with m_OT=17.2. We have reference image on 2016-03-10.04072 UT with unfiltered mlim= 21.0m.
22 mag limit in history(POSS) means more then 5.1 mag of current outburst ampl.
Spectral observations are required.

MASTER OT J174155.54-620817.1 discovery - poss. dwarf nova outburst, Ampl>4.5mag

MASTER-OAFA auto-detection system discovered OT source at (RA, Dec) = 17h 41m 55.54s -62d 08m 17.1s on 2017-04-28.24921 UT.
The OT unfiltered magnitude is 17.5m (mlim=19.3m).
The OT is seen in 3 images. There is no minor planet at this place.
We have reference image without OT on 2016-08-24.09389 UT with 19.7 unfiltered magnitude limit. There is only GSC2.3.2 star in 0.8" with known blue jmag=21.56 , it means 22m POSS limit in history and more then 4.5mag of current outburst amplitude
Spectral observations are required.
