MASTER OT J142718.40-014031.0 discovery - PSN in 7"W,11.6"N from the center of PGC051614
MASTER-IAC auto-detection system ( Lipunov et al., "MASTER Global Robotic Net", Advances in Astronomy, 2010, 349171 ) discovered OT source at (RA, Dec) = 14h 27m 18.40s -01d 40m 31.0s on 2016-03-09.06447 UT.
The OT unfiltered magnitude is 17.3m (limit 19.9m).

The OT is seen in 8 images. There is no minor planet at this place.

We have reference images without OT on 2016-02-15 02:06:46 with m_lim=20.3, on 2015-07-29.88537 UT with unfiltered magnitude limit 18.6m.

This PSN is in 7"W,11.6"N from the center of PGC051614 (Btot=15.8, Vhel=16197km/s)
Spectral observations are required.

The discovery and reference images are available at http://master.sai.msu.ru/static/OT/142718.40-014031.0.png
