MASTER OT J211258.65+242145.4 - new CV
MASTER-Kislovodsk auto-detection system discovered OT source at (RA,
Dec) = 21h 12m 58.65s +24d 21m 45.4s on 2012-06-24.85937 UT. The OT
unfiltered magnitude is 12.9m (limit 18.9m).
The OT is seen in 3 images with the following automatic unfiltered magnitudes:
2012-06-24 20:03:36 UT 12.85
2012-06-24 20:37:29 UT 12.94
2012-06-24 21:12:04 UT 12.90
We have MASTER-Kislovodsk reference image without OT on 2010-10-26
17:55:44 UT with unfiltered magnitude limit 19.3m.
The discovery and reference images are available at: http://master.sai.msu.ru/static/OT/MASTER211258.65+242145.4.jpg
The object is present in USNO-B catalog as USNO-B1.0 1143-0518038
(RA=21 12 58.724 Dec=+24 21 45.58 pmRA=12 pmDE=-4 B1=19.73 R1=20.03
B2=20.78 R2=20.39) and in GALEX UV catalog as GALEX J211258.7+242145
(FUV=19.91+/-0.12 NUV=20.06+/-0.07). There is nothing at this position
in 2MASS, GCVS and AAVSO VSX. This area is not covered by SDSS and
We have checked archival Palomar/NEAT images available at SkyMorph
website. Object was observed 36 times on 13 nights from June 2000 to
July 2003. No previous outbursts were detected.
Based on the blue color and outburst amplitude (about 7 mag) we
conclude that MASTER OT J211258.65+242145.4 is a dwarf nova of U Gem
type, likely of UGWZ subtype. Follow up observations are required.
