MASTER OT J195357.46-630110.3 discovery - possibly dwarf nova, ampl>4.5m

MASTER-OAFA auto-detection system ( Lipunov et al., "MASTER Global Robotic Net", Advances in Astronomy, 2010, 30L ) discovered OT source at (RA, Dec) = 19h 53m 57.46s -63d 01m 10.3s on 2017-06-04.06779 UT.
The OT unfiltered magnitude is 17.5m (mlim=18.1m).
The OT is seen in 3 images. There is no minor planet at this place. We have reference image without OT on 2017-04-03.24109 UT with 19.1 unfiltered magnitude limit
We reobserved it on 2017-06-05 22:49:01.893 with m_OT=18.5.
There is GSC2.3 star in 0.8" with blue jmag=22.11 on 1979.707, so the ampl of current outburst was more then 4.5m

MASTER OT J141350.21-304032.8 detection - dwarf nova outburst, ampl>3.5m

MASTER-OAFA auto-detection system discovered OT source at (RA, Dec) = 14h 13m 50.21s -30d 40m 32.8s on 2017-05-29.04012 UT.
The OT unfiltered magnitude is 16.5m (mlim=19.3m). The OT is seen in 11 images.
We have reference image without OT on 2017-04-03.21322 UT with 20.1m unfiltered magnitude limit.
Previous outburst was on 2016-07-24 02:07:27.769UT with m_OT=15.5
.It means more then 3.5m of current outburst and >4.5m in last 2016y's outburst.
There is a GALEX source in 0.8", i.e. accretion process.
Spectral observations are required.

MASTER OT J203042.96-195842.8 detection

MASTER-OAFA auto-detection system detected OT source at (RA, Dec) = 20h 30m 42.96s -19d 58m 42.8s on 2017-05-25.30853 UT.
The OT unfiltered magnitude is 18.9m (mlim=19.7m).
The OT is seen in 3 image. There is no minor planet at this place.
We have reference image without OT on 2017-03-11 03:20:26UT (MASTER-SAAO) with mlim=19.0, on 2016-11-19.04358 UT with 19.5m unfiltered magnitude limit .
The nearest known source is Gaia's with Gmag=18.3, and WISE source in 2.8" with J-K=0.7m.
22m POSS limit in history gives current ampl>2.7m.
Spectral observations are required.
