MASTER outburst and reference images:

Coordinates measured by the robot (average of 6 detections):
23 43 24.90 +42 08 41.0

The star at minimum is present in SDSS photometric catalog (release 9):
SDSS J234324.81+420841.0
u=20.25 g=20.18 r=19.89 i=19.60 z=19.20

The paper "Dwarf novae characterization using SDSS colors" by Taichi
Kato et al. (2012) gives the period estimate of 0.091d, 87%
probability of the variable being UGSU-type dwarf nova and 13% of

There is another (redder) component within 3" present in SDSS, 2MASS
and WISE which contaminates the magnitude estimates of the variable at
minimum light.

The star has an UV counterpart in GALEX data:
GALEX J234324.8+420840 (FUV=21.20+/-0.19 NUV=20.67+/-0.08)
