LIGO/Virgo G274296: DLT40 follow-up observation

Sheng Yang (INAF-OAPd, UC Davis), Stefano Valenti(UC Davis), David Sand (TTU), Leonardo Tartaglia (TTU, UC Davis), Enrico Cappellaro(INAF-OAPd), Dan Reichart, Josh Haislip (UNC) report on behalf of the Gravitational Wave Follow-Up by DLT40.

We report the observation of 25 galaxies within the LVC error region for the GW trigger G274296 using the cWB localization map.We selected 46 galaxies from the GWGC catalogue within 80.0% of the trigger error region, within a distance of 40.0 Mpc, brighter that -17.5 mag and at a Declination < 20 degree. 25 of those galaxies have been observed using the Prompt 5 telescope and are part of the ongoing DLT40 search. They represent the 1.3% of all galaxies within 40.0 Mpc in the Glade catalogue within the LVC error region for the GW trigger and contains 6.1% of all B band luminosity of those galaxies. We started to observe these sample of galaxies on 2017-2-17 and monitored them for 3 weeks after the GW trigger. No interesting transients have been identified down to a limit magnitude of 18.5.

Below follow the list of galaxies observed:
