MASTER OT J200130.53-100736.8 discovery - bright high amplitude CV(>5.5m) or SN in SDSS galaxy

MASTER-SAAO auto-detection system ( Lipunov et al., "MASTER Global Robotic Net", Advances in Astronomy, 2010, 349171 ) discovered OT source at (RA, Dec) = 20h 01m 30.53s -10d 07m 36.8s on 2016-05-16.94397 UT with unfiltered m_OT=16.3m (m_lim=18.7m).
The OT is seen in 3 images.We have reference without OT on 2016-05-14 03:30:422UT in MASTER-IAC database with mlim=20.0, and on 2015-04-25.06574 UT with mlim=19.3 in MASTER-SAAO database.
There are Sloan DSS star in 1.3" with red jmag=21.788 and galaxy in 6.7" with red jmag=18.242.
It can be both SN(but 1.9mag brighter the host galaxy in less then 2 days) and CV with ampl>5.5m at the begining of the outburst
Spectral observations are required.

MASTER OT J192544.94-202113.1 discovery - bright dwarf nova outburst, Ampl>5.2m

MASTER-SAAO auto-detection system discovered OT source at (RA, Dec) = 19h 25m 44.94s -20d 21m 13.1s on 2016-05-16.92341 UT with unf. m_OT=16.8m (m_lim=18.7m), there are 3 images with OT.
We have reference without OT on 2015-08-15.78067 UT with unf.m_lim=19.3m. There is only GSC2.3.2 optical source in 0.6" with blue jmag=21.16 (and 22m POSS limit).And this source is an ultraviolet one(GALEX), so the amplitude this dwarf nova(possible outburst is more then 5.2m

MASTER OT J183747.26-520558.2 - dwarf nova outburst, ampl>4.9m

MASTER-SAAO auto-detection system discovered OT source at (RA, Dec) = 18h 37m 47.26s -52d 05m 58.2s on 2016-05-15.91206 UT with unf. m_OT=17.1m (m_lim=19.2m). The OT is seen in 6 images. We have reference without OT on 2016-04-05.03545 UT, unf.m_lim=19.6m
There is only GSC2.3.2 star with blue jmag=21.6 (and marginally seen OT at blue POSS images), so the Ampl>4.9m

MASTER OT J155833.96-232213.9 discovery - dwarf nova outburst, Ampl>3.6m, no VIZIER data

MASTER-SAAO auto-detection system discovered OT source at (RA, Dec) = 15h 58m 33.96s -23d 22m 13.9s on 2016-05-12.01422 UT with unf. m_OT=18.4m (lim=20.0m).
There are 3images with OT and reference image without OT on 2015-03-19.00118 UT ,unf.m_lim=20.2m.
There is no any known source in VIZIER database, so the outburst Ampl>3.6m

MASTER OT J171812.59+060815.8 discovery - dwarf nova outburst, Ampl>4.6m, no VIZIER

MASTER-SAAO auto-detection system discovered OT source at (RA, Dec) = 17h 18m 12.59s +06d 08m 15.8s on 2016-05-16.92093 UT with unf.m_OT=17.4m (mlim=19.1m).
There are 4 images with OT and reference one without OT on 2015-04-30.00648 UT with unf.m_lim=18.4m.
There is no known sources in VIZIER database(22m POSS limits), so the outburst's Ampl>4.6m

MASTER OT J145417.82-351735.6 discovery - dwarf nova outburst, Ampl>4.7, no optical sources in VIZIER

MASTER-SAAO auto-detection system discovered OT source at (RA, Dec) = 14h 54m 17.82s -35d 17m 35.6s on 2016-05-11.97119 UT with unfilt.m_OT=17.3m (limit 18.9m)
There are 3 images with OT and reference without OT on 2015-07-09.84811 UT, unf.m_lim=20.4m.
There is no known optical sources in VIZIER database, only UV GALEX (the accretion), so outburst Ampl>4.7m
