MASTER OT J135329.90-421622.5 - possible SN or Dwarf Nova

MASTER-SAAO auto-detection system ( Lipunov et al., Advances in Astronomy, MASTER Global Robotic Net, 2010 ) discovered OT source at (RA, Dec) = 13h 53m 29.90s -42d 16m 22.5s on 2015-02-27.02082 UT.

The OT unfiltered magnitude is 17.8m (the limit is 19.6m).

There are 11 images with OT on this night.

We have reference image without OT on 2015-01-01.03934 UT with 19.2 unfiltered magnitude limit.

There is unknown galaxy (blue source) near this OT, offset is 8".

The discovery and reference images are available at http://master.sai.msu.ru/static/OT/MASTERJ135329.90-421622.5.jpg

Spectral observations are required.

MASTER OT J210824.05+232829.0 - possible Dwarf Nova

MASTER-Kislovodsk auto-detection system discovered OT source at (RA, Dec) = 21h 08m 24.05s +23d 28m 29.0s on 2015-02-26.08786 UT.

The OT unfiltered magnitude is 16.8m (the limit is 19.1m).

There are 8 images with OT at this night. There is no minor planet at this place.

We have reference image without OT on 2010-10-26.759 UT with 19.7 unfiltered magnitude limit.

This OT can be identical to SDSS J210824.09+232829.0 with rmag=20.875 and gmag=21.288.

The discovery and reference images are available at http://master.sai.msu.ru/static/OT/MASTERJ210824.05+232829.0.jpg

Spectral observations are required.
