Podest (Observatorio Astronomico Felix Aguilar; OAFA) report: MASTER-Kislovodsk auto-detection system discovered OT source at (RA, Dec) = 07h 18m 56.78s +60d 18m 33.3s on 2012-10-08.08789 UT. The OT unfiltered magnitude is 15.5m (limit 18.8m). The OT is seen in 2 images. There is no minor planet at this place. We have reference image without OT on 2010-11-07.98868 UT with magnitude limit in 'BLANK' filter 19.7m. There is nothing at this position in USNO-B1.0, GSC 2.3.2, 2MASS, GALEX, 1RXS, GCVS catalogs and in AAVSO VSX. This area is not covered by SDSS and NEAT. Nothing is visible at the position of the OT on 9 available DSS plates and on their combination down to limiting magnitude ~21.5. Color-combined (BRIR) DSS finder chart is uploaded to http://master.sai.msu.ru/static/OT/J071856+601833-BRIR.jpg (10'x10' FOV). We have obtained follow-up images with MASTER-Tunka telescope simultaneously in two filters on 2012 Oct. 08.842 UT. The photometry is as follows: V=15.6, I=15.8. Based on the amplitude of variability (more than 6m) and color (V-I=-0.2) we suggest that MASTER OT J071856.78+601833.3 is likely a new cataclysmic variable (dwarf nova) in outburst. Follow up observations are required. The discovery and reference images are available at: http://master.sai.msu.ru/static/OT/071856.78601833.3.png
