1) MASTER OT J031627.40+462625.1 discovery

MASTER-Kislovodsk auto-detection system ( Lipunov et al., "MASTER Global Robotic Net", Advances in Astronomy, 2010, 30L ) discovered OT source at (RA, Dec) = 03h 16m 27.40s +46d 26m 25.1s on 2017-08-23.76780 UT. The OT unfiltered magnitude is 17.0m (limit 17.7m).
The OT is seen in 2 images. There is no minor planet at this place.
We have reference image without OT on 2015-10-05.92051 UT with unfiltered magnitude limit 19.1m.
