We report optical photometry of the quasar B2 2308+34 (ATel # 5517, ATel # 5477, ATel # 5487) and of the new bright cataclysmic variable MASTER OT J234843.23+250250.4 (ATel # 5526). The brightness of both objects is decreasing with a few tenths of magnitude for four days. The observations are carried out with the 0.35m Newton telescope + CCD STL11000M at the SAO Plana (ATel # 5558).

The magnitudes given are obtained from a photometric solution using magnitudes of The USNO-B Catalog (Monet et al. 2003, AJ, 125, 984) and UCAC4 Catalogue (Zacharias et al. 2013, AJ, 145, 44):
