MASTER OT J081340.07-830140.1 discovery - bright 16.2m short optical transient

MASTER-OAFA auto-detection system ( Lipunov et al., "MASTER Global Robotic Net", Advances in Astronomy, 2010, 30L ) discovered OT source at (RA, Dec) = 08h 13m 40.07s -83d 01m 40.1s on 2016-12-11.25204 UT.
The OT unfiltered magnitude is 16.2m (mlim=18.2m).
This OT is seen in 2 images on 2016-12-11 06:02:56, 05:44:43UT (mOT=16.2).
There is no OT on 2016-12-11 05:25:02UT (mlim=18.5, MASTER-OAFA)and there is no OT on 2016-12-11 21:51:11UT (MASTER-SAAO).
There is no minor planet at this place.
We have reference image without OT on 2016-10-25.20573 UT with unfiltered magnitude limit 19.5m.
There is a star with J-K=0.8, but 17 minutes between the same m_OT values means, that they are near maximum. But for UVCet the rise must be longer then 2.3mag for 20min (05:25 with 18.5 limit - 05:44 with OT=16.2).
Deep photometry is required.

MASTER OT J135709.65-453910.9 discovery - new dwarf onva outburst, Ampl>5m, no VIZIER data

MASTER-SAAO auto-detection system discovered OT source at (RA, Dec) = 13h 57m 09.65s -45d 39m 10.9s on 2016-12-06.08997 UT.
The OT unfiltered magnitude is 17.0m(mlim=17.8).
The OT is seen in 2 images on 06 Dec, on 4 images on 08Dec, and on 2 images on 10Dec.
We have reference images without OT on 2015-06-21.74311 UT with unfiltered mlim= 19.7m, on 2016-09-17 17:35:22UT with m_lim=19.0
There is no known sources in VIZIER, it means 22m POSS limit and more then 5m of current outburst's amplitude.
Spectral observations are required.

MASTER OT J024502.93-360752.6 detection
MASTER-OAFA auto-detection system discovered OT source at (RA, Dec) = 02h 45m 02.93s -36d 07m 52.6s on 2016-12-02.20434 UT.
The OT unfiltered m_OT=18.5m (mlim=20.1m).
The OT is seen in 6 images. There is no minor planet at this place.
There is faint blue source at POSS images: USNO-B1 B2=20.33, R2=21.49, but we have no reference images without OT or with such magnitude in MASTER database.
OT is present on 2016-09-26.23890 UT (MASTER-OAFA) and at all images in MASTER-SAAO since December 2014 with m=18.5 (2014-12-21 20:51:59.193, 2015-01-12 20:15:24.94, 2015-02-15 19:54:36.605, 2015-10-07 23:24:22.328, 2016-03-03 18:54:21.988, 2016-09-07 22:01:25.709, 2016-10-22 22:33:25.562UT)
Spectral observations are required.
