MASTER OT J211322.92+260647.4 - new bright CV
MASTER-Amur auto-detection system discovered OT source at (RA, Dec) = 21h 13m 22.92s +26d 06m 47.4s on 2012-12-21.46578 UT.
The OT unfiltered magnitude is 15.2m (limit 16.1m).
The OT is seen in 4 images.
We have reference image without OT on 2011-08-21.64619 UT with unfiltered magnitude limit 19.6m.
There is a faint star at the position of OT on blue digitized POSS
plates. Color-combined finder chart is uploaded to http://master.sai.msu.ru/static/OT/J211322+260647-BRIR5x5.jpg The star
is present in GSC 2.3.2 with the coordinates (J2000.0) 21 13 22.953
+26 06 47.02 and magnitude Jmag=21.69. It is also identical to the UV
source GALEX J211322.8+260647 (FUV=21.97+/-0.31, NUV=22.84+/-0.48).
Nothing is present at this position in 2MASS, USNO-B1.0, 1RXS, GCVS
catalogs and in AAVSO VSX. This area of sky is not covered by SDSS and
CRTS. No previous outbursts were detected on 9 Palomar/NEAT images
obtained on 2001 Aug. 12, 18 and 2002 July 27.
Based on the amplitude of variability (more than 6m) we conclude that
MASTER OT J211322.92+260647.4 is a new cataclysmic variable of SU UMa
or WZ Sge type in superoutburst. Follow up observations are required.
