MASTER OT J050828.30-775951.0 : possible new CV

MASTER-SAAO auto-detection system discovered OT source with (RA, Dec) = 05h 08m 28.30s -77d 59m 51.0 at 2015-01-30.956 UT (See MASTER project description: Lipunov et. al., 2010, MASTER Robotic Net, Advances in Astronomy, vol. 2010, p1-7).

The OT unfiltered magnitude is 17.6m (limit is 19.0m). The OT is seen at 6 images. There is no minor planet at this place. There is a star in the USNO-B1.0 Catalogue (Monet+, 2003) with B2=19.8, R2=20.44. We have reference image without OT on 2015-01-10.931 UT with 19.4m unfiltered magnitude limit 19.4m. The discovery and reference images are available at http://master.sai.msu.ru/static/OT/050828.30-775951.0.jpg . Spectral observations are required.

MASTER OT J184617.64 +173052.3 : possible new CV MASTER-Tunka auto-detection system discovered OT source at (RA, Dec) = 18h 46m 17.64s +17d 30m 52.3s on 2015-01-27.984 UT.

The OT unfiltered magnitude is 17.5m (limit is 17.9m). We have 6 images with OT. There is no minor planet at this place and nothing is in 7” around at VIZIER catalogs.

We have reference image without OT on 2010-09-06.55568 UT with 18.9m unfiltered magnitude limit. The discovery and reference images are available at http://master.sai.msu.ru/static/OT/master184617.64+173052.3.jpg .

Follow up multiwavelength observations and spectroscopy are required.

MASTER J183120.63+301935.2 : ATel 4761 is active now.
