MASTER OT J125532.84-050442.8 discovery - new dwarf nova outburst, Ampl>6.3m, no VIZIER
MASTER-IAC auto-detection system ( Lipunov et al., "MASTER Global Robotic Net", Advances in Astronomy, 2010, 30L ) discovered OT source at (RA, Dec) = 12h 55m 32.84s -05d 04m 42.8s on 2016-11-17.26843 UT.
The OT unfiltered magnitude is 15.7m (limit 17.5m).
The OT is seen in 3 image. There is no minor planet at this place.
We have reference images without OT on 2016-04-03.09016 UT with unfiltered magnitude limit 20.5m, on 2016-07-24 21:17:44UT with mlim=19.2. There is no OT in MASTER-Amur,-Kislovodsk,-Tunka databases since 2010-04-19 20:34:30UT up to 20m
There is no any sources in VIZIER database, it means 22m POSS history limit and more then 6.3mag of current amplitude value.
Spectral observations are required.
