MASTER OT J195321.61+181050.3 discovery - preliminary dwarf nova outburst 
with ampl > 4m .

MASTER-Kislovodsk auto-detection system discovered OT source at (RA, Dec) 
= 19h 53m 21.61s +18d 10m 50.3s on 2019-07-07.83846 UT during LVC S190707q 
inspect (GCN #25012, GCN #25022).

The OT unfiltered magnitude is 16.6m (limit 17.9m).

The OT is seen in 4 images. There is no minor planet at this place.

We have reference image without OT on 2014-08-27.87829 UT with unfiltered 
magnitude limit 18.8m.

Spectral observations are required.

The discovery and reference images are available at:

http://master.sai.msu.ru/static/OT/195321.61181050.3.png

Folow up observations are required.

Up to now we cover ~700 sq. degree inside the S190707q error box, which is 
makes up  62% from 50% errorbox and 45% of full error box. The cover map 
available here.
