MASTER OT J164511.95+275227.2 discovery - bright (15.8m) QSO flare

MASTER-IAC auto-detection system discovered OT source at (RA, Dec) = 16h 45m 11.95s +27d 52m 27.2s on 2016-06-12.01477 UT.
The OT unfiltered magnitude is 15.8m (limit 19.3m). The OT in bright state is seen in 3 images. We have reference images with OT in quiet state on

Last outburst was registered at MASTER-Kislovodsk on 2012-07-15 18:48:55.952 with unfiltered m_OT=16.8.
This OT is in 0.6" from the candidate to QSO( SDSS DR10 catalogue of candidate quasars (Brescia+, 2015))
Spectral observations are required.

The images without OT with m_lim: 2016-05-08 04:56:57 up to 19.0
2016-04-10 01:00:32 up to 19.5
2016-02-23 19:57:28 up to 19.7

There is some correction to ATEL #9164, the OT is seen on the sum (540s) of 3 images(180s), started at 2016-06-16 04:47:12UT with m_lim=19.9 (and on the difference from this sum and the image of last year), but this OT is not seen(automatically can't be detected) on the single image at 2016-06-16 04:47:12UT with m_lim=19.3. This is Andromeda field, and the limits are +-0.2, also for the magnitudes of the star near this limit (preliminary automatic values).
