MASTER OT J020844.29+481923.0 - CV?
MASTER-Tunka auto-detection system (Lipunov et al., 2010, Advances in Astronomy, vol. 2010, pp. 1, http://adsabs.harvard.edu/abs/2010AdAst2010E..30L ) discovered OT source at (RA, Dec) = 02h 08m 44.29s +48d 19m 23.0s on 2015-01-08.52068 UT.
The OT unfiltered magnitude is 17.4m (limit 19.1m).
The OT is seen in 9 images.
We have reference image without OT on 2010-08-23.66538 UT with 18.3m unfiltered magnitude limit.
There is 2MASS galaxy at 020842.94 +481949.1 with 30 arcsec offset. But, OT is very far from this E-type galaxy.
The Color-combined DSS finder chart is uploaded to http://master.sai.msu.ru/static/OT/J020844+481922-BRIR5x5.jpg (2xzoom).
We have follow up V, R and unfiltered photometry starting at 2015-01-13 12:52:56 UT up to 2015-01-13 13:22:44UT . We did not find OT in R filter brighter than 17.7 . The unfiltered magnitude didn't changed more than 0.1 mag. The V magnitude is about 17.8.
The discovery and reference images are available at http://master.sai.msu.ru/static/OT/MASTERJ020844.29+481923.0.jpg
Follow up observations are required.
