MASTER OT J225624.49-333456.0 discovery - new Dwarf Nova outburst (Ampl>3.8m) or possible SN in 6dFJ2256308-333429 galaxy

MASTER-SAAO auto-detection system ( Lipunov et al., Advances in Astronomy, MASTER Global Robotic Net, 2010 ) discovered OT source at (RA, Dec) = 22h 56m 24.49s -33d 34m 56.0s on 2015-05-26.03661 UT.
The OT unfiltered magnitude is 18.2m (the limit is 20.2m).

There are 5 images with OT from 2015-05-26.03661 to 2015-05-26.064.

We have reference image without OT on 2015-04-09.13021 UT with 19.8 unfiltered magnitude limit. There is no known source in VIZIER database inside 5", CRTS observed this area, but has never seen a source. So we can suggest the Dwarf Nova outburst with amplitude more then 3.8m.
There is bright galaxy in 83", and there is a possibility to be a PSN in it.

Spectral observations are required.

MASTER OT J211809.20+265714.0 discovery - Dwarf Nova outburst with Ampl>4m

MASTER-Kislovodsk auto-detection system discovered OT source at (RA, Dec) = 21h 18m 09.20s +26d 57m 14.0s on 2015-05-25.90788 UT.
The OT unfiltered magnitude is 17.8m (the limit is 19.0m).

The OT is seen in 3 images. There is no minor planet at this place.
We have reference image without OT on 2011-08-31.84289 UT with 20.0 unfiltered magnitude limit.

There is GSC2.3 star with jmag=21.85. So we can suggest that MASTER OT is the Dwarf Nova outburst with Ampl>4m.

Spectral observations are required.

MASTER OT J210819.26+315453.4 discovery - new Dwarf Nova outburst with Ampl>4.3

MASTER-Kislovodsk auto-detection system discovered OT source at (RA, Dec) = 21h 08m 19.26s +31d 54m 53.4s on 2015-05-25.90998 UT.
The OT unfiltered magnitude is 17.7m (the limit is 18.8m).

The OT is seen in 7 images. There is no minor planet at this place.

We have a lot of images without OT in MASTER-Kislovodsk database, for ex.,on 2013-11-09.64701 UT with 18.5 unfiltered magnitude limit.

Spectral observations are required.
