       MASTER ( responded to GRB 050824 (Swift trigger 
151905) (see GCN3869). The first image  was 764 sec after
SWIFT  GRB050824 detection    under the   Moon light.
  We see OT-candidate  proposed by J. Gorosabel (GCN 3865).
Our m = 0.89R + 0.11B (R & B from USNO A2).
We made new reduction and confirm previous our OT-decay result (GCN3870):
New reduction give next results about OT:
