MASTER OT J182527.58+662528.8 - possible dwarf nova outburst with Ampl>4.3mag

MASTER-Kislovodsk auto-detection system ( Lipunov et al., Advances in Astronomy, MASTER Global Robotic Net, 2010 ) discovered OT source at (RA, Dec) = 18h 25m 27.58s +66d 25m 28.8s on 2015-07-08.84251 UT.
The OT unfiltered magnitude is 17.7m (the limit is 19.7m).

The OT is seen in 3 images. There is no minor planet at this place. We have reference image without OT on 2015-06-11.90839 UT with 20.3 unfiltered magnitude limit.
There is EO0550-0141828 star (APM-North catalogue) with Bmag=22.02. So we can suggest the dwarf nova outburst with Ampl>4.3mag.

Spectral observations are required.

MASTER OT J202151.88-455950.3 - possible dwarf nova outburst with Ampl>3.3mag

MASTER-SAAO auto-detection system discovered OT source at (RA, Dec) = 20h 21m 51.88s -45d 59m 50.3s on 2015-07-08.89427 UT.
The OT unfiltered magnitude is 17.8m (limit 18.8m).

The OT is seen in 4 images. There is no minor planet at this place. We have reference image without OT on 2015-04-22.08853 UT with unfiltered magnitude limit 20.8m.
There is USNO-B1 star with R2=21.14 (previous minimum), I=18.31, J=16.293(WISE), GALEX NUV=22.113.So, we can suggest the dwarf nova outburst with Ampl>3.3mag

Spectral observations are required.
