MASTER OT J174902.10+191331.2 outburst

> MASTERJ174902.10+191331.2  17:49:02.05   19:13:29.7     2013-07-14.37   14.45

   This object was discovered at mag 13.3 by MASTER in 2012.
On the same night, AAVSO observations (Pickard) recorded
the object around V=15.0 (and fading rapidly).
The MASTER observations may have overestimated the brightness
of the object.

   The present outburst was detected by an AAVSO observer CCY
on July 12 at 14.2 mag, 2 d before the ASASSN detection!
If the object is an SU UMa-type dwarf nova, the current outburst
should be a superoutburst.
