"MASTER Very Wide Filed Camera located at Kislovodsk Solar Station 
(, D=70 mm, 400 square degrees) has moved to the 
Swift-BAT trigger 250033 and it has taken a series of 5s exposures 
starting 303s after the Notice Time at 17:01:33.658 UT (the large delay 
was due to problems with connection). The weather is not very good.
No new object has been found within the Swift-BAT error box.
The limiting magnitude is 10.0m (unfiltered) for single exposures
and 11.4 m for the coadded 10 images.
The message may be cited.
