MASTER OT J184401.22-615906.5 discovery - possible SN at the rising part of LC in bright IC4754 galaxy

MASTER-SAAO auto-detection system ( Lipunov et al., "MASTER Global Robotic Net", Advances in Astronomy, 2010, 349171 ) discovered OT source at (RA, Dec) = 18h 44m 01.22s -61d 59m 06.5s on 2016-03-23.01557 UT.

The OT unfiltered magnitude is 17.4m (limit 18.6m).

The OT is seen in 5 images. There is no minor planet at this place.

We have reference image without OT on 2015-08-08.89936 UT with unfiltered magnitude limit 20.2m.

This PSN is in 6.8"0E and 18.2"N from the IC4754 galaxy.
Spectral observations are required.
