MASTER OT J193511.60+540219.9 discovery - possible dwarf nova outburst with ampl>3.3m

MASTER-Tunka auto-detection system ( Lipunov et al., MASTER Global Robotic Net, Advances in Astronomy, 2010, 349171) discovered OT source at (RA, Dec) = 19h 35m 11.60s +54d 02m 19.9s on 2015-11-19.58255 UT with 17.0 unfiltered magnitude (the limit is 18.6m).
This OT is seen in 3 images. There is no minor planet at this place. We have reference image without OT on 2013-04-04.77429 UT with unfiltered magnitude limit 19.8m.

The discovery and reference images are available at http://master.sai.msu.ru/static/OT/MASTEROTJ193511.60+540219.9.jpg
There is GSC2.3.2 star with red=20.20, blue=20.57. So we suggest the dwarf nova outburst with amplitude more then 3.3m.
Spectral observations are required.

MASTER OT J152850.50-802431.0 discovery - possible dwarf nova outburst with Ampl>3.2m

MASTER-SAAO auto-detection system discovered OT source at (RA, Dec) = 15h 28m 50.50s -80d 24m 31.0s on 2015-11-17.05332 UT with 18.8 unfiltered magnitude (the limit is 20.2m).
The OT is seen in 8 images. There is no minor planet at this place. We have reference image without OT on 2015-08-16.76571 UT with unfiltered magnitude limit 20.3m.

There is GSC2.3.2 star with blue 22.07m. So we suggest the dwarf nova outburst with amplitude more then 3.2m.

Spectral observations are required.
