MASTER OT J111012.51+274912.8 discovery - new OT inside Fermi GRB 200325B 
(trigger 606840801)

MASTER Global Robotic Net inspected GRB 200325B:
Fermi trigger 606840801, Ttr=2020-03-05 14:53:16 UT, GCN #27441,
MASTER report GCN #27442, MASTER map and OT position.
During inspection
MASTER-Kislovodsk auto-detection system ( Lipunov et al., "MASTER Global 
Robotic Net", Advances in Astronomy, 2010, 30L )
discovered new OT source at (RA, Dec) = 11h 10m 12.51s +27d 49m 12.8s on 
2020-03-25 16:21:15 UT.
The OT unfiltered magnitude is 16.1m (mlim=17.8).
The OT is seen in 2 inspect images
(MASTER has 2 tubes at each observatory and works with large error-fields 
like Fermi in open mode, that gives 8 square degrees, i.e. 2x4sq.deg.).
There is no minor planet at this place and no any sources in VIZIER 
database (22mag limit in POSS history).

We have reference images on 2010-03-13.87244 UT with unfiltered mlim= 
20.2m, on 2020-02-21 21:54:40UT with mlim=20.3.
Spectral observations are required.
The discovery and reference images are available at:
