We have reference image without OT on 2015-01-01.077 UT with unfiltered magnitude limit 18.9m. There is no minor planet at this place.

This star is identical to USNO B1.0 0425-0525969 with B2=19.98, R2=17.61, I=17.18. Nothing is present at this position in AAVSO VSX.

The possible type of OT is SS Cyg.

Follow up observations are required. The discovery and reference images are available at: http://master.sai.msu.ru/static/OT/J150948.78-472953.6.jpg

MASTER OT 064334.81+741014.7 - possible CV

MASTER-Tunka auto-detection system discovered OT source at (RA, Dec) = 06h 43m 34.81s +74d 10m 14.7s on 2015-01-04.460 UT. 16.2 unfiltered magnitude (the limit is18.2m).

The OT is seen in 4 images. There is no minor planet at this place.

We have about 160 reference images without OT at MASTER-Kislovodsk, -Tunka and -Amur database from 2010-11-13.746UT with 19.9m unfiltered magnitude limit up to 2015-01-04.460 UT. The amplitude of variability is about 4m.

Follow up observations are required.
