MASTER OT J172543.25-732947.9 discovery - Dwarf Nova flare

MASTER-SAAO auto-detection system ( Lipunov et al., Advances in Astronomy, MASTER Global Robotic Net, 2010 ) discovered OT source at (RA, Dec) = 17h 25m 43.25s -73d 29m 47.9s on 2015-04-14.99043 UT.

The OT unfiltered magnitude is 17.5m (the limit is 20.1m).
There are 12 images with OT in MASTER-SAAO database. We have reference image without OT on 2015-03-13.007UT with m_lim=19.1, 2015-01-28.01113 UT with 19.8 unfiltered magnitude limit, on 2014-12-17.821 with m_lim=19.6 .
There is 0165-0272280 USNO-B1 star with B2=18.32, R2=20.83, I=18.55.

The discovery and reference images are available at:http://master.sai.msu.ru/static/OT/172543.25-732947.9.png

MASTER OT J223910.79+341826.0 discovery - possible SuperNova in SDSS galaxy (GALEX UvS)

MASTER-Kislovodsk auto-detection system discovered OT source at (RA, Dec) = 22h 39m 10.79s +34d 18m 26.0s on 2015-04-17.04856 UT.
The OT unfiltered magnitude is 16.7m (the limit is 17.9m). There are 3 images with this PSN in MASTER-Kislovodsk database. We have reference image without OT on 2010-11-09.64832 UT with 20.2m unfiltered magnitude limit.
There is SDSS J223910.15+341828.2 galaxy in 8.232" (and GALEXMSC J223910.05+341828.9 UvS).
Spectral observations are required.

MASTER OT J085416.79+183526.1 discovery - new Dwarf Nova

MASTER-Kislovodsk auto-detection system discovered OT source at (RA, Dec) = 08h 54m 16.79s +18d 35m 26.1s on 2015-04-16.77075 UT.

The OT unfiltered magnitude is 17.9m (the limit is 19.8m). There 3 images with OT in MASTER-Kislovodsk database. There is no minor planet at this place.

There are 120 images without OT from 2009 up to 2015 with unfiltered m_lim from 19 to 20.1 in MASTER-Kislovodsk database (for example, on 2010-03-18.75527 UT with 20.1 unfiltered magnitude limit).

There is no any known source inside 5" in VIZIER database and in CRTS history.

Spectral observations are required.

MASTER OT J165348.55-223445.0 discovery - Flare or variability of probable red star

MASTER-SAAO auto-detection system discovered OT source at (RA, Dec) = 16h 53m 48.55s -22d 34m 45.0s on 2015-04-16.90039 UT.

The OT unfiltered magnitude is 17.7m (the limit is 19.1m). There are 9 images with OT in MASTER-SAAO database (from 21:36:34.954 to 22:27:31.47 without decay). There is no minor planet at this place.

We have reference images without OT on 2015-01-29.10984 UT with 19.1 unfiltered magnitude limit.

There is a USNO-B1 star with R2=18.26, I=16.68 (the flare in last). No JHK. This region was observed by CRTS, but no sources during all observations at MASTER OT's RA,Dec. Not UVCet.

Spectral observations are required.
