MASTER OT J003404.53-103337.9 discovery - PSN in Sloan galaxy

MASTER-OAFA auto-detection system ( Lipunov et al., "MASTER Global Robotic Net", Advances in Astronomy, 2010, 30L ) discovered OT source at (RA, Dec) = 00h 34m 04.53s -10d 33m 37.9s on 2017-08-31.27935 UT.
The OT unfiltered magnitude is 18.6m (mlim=20.0m).
The OT is seen in 2 images. We have reference image without OT on 2016-10-30.05259 UT with ?????????? magnitude limit 20.0m.
There is no minor planet at this place.
There is Sloan galaxy with rmag=20.745

Spectral observations are required.
