MASTER OT J200358.24-244145.0 - possible CV

MASTER-IAC auto-detection system discovered OT source at (RA, Dec) = 20h 03m 58.24s -24d 41m 45.0s on 2015-08-15.94080 UT. The OT unfiltered magnitude is 16.8m (limit 19.0m). The OT is seen in 3 images. There is no minor planet at this place. We have reference image without OT on 2015-06-09.15157 UT with unfiltered magnitude limit 18.8m. Spectral observations are required.
