LIGO/Virgo G275697: DLT40 follow-up observation

Sheng Yang at UC Davis <sngyang@ucdavis.edu>
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 59 galaxies within the LVC error region for the GW trigger G275697 using the 'bayestar' GW localization map from 2017-2-27 to 2017-3-7 and the observation of 114 galaxies from 2017-3-7 to 2017-3-12 after the update of LALInference localization map. We selected galaxies from the GWGC catalogue within 80.0% of the trigger error region, within a distance of 40.0 Mpc, brighter than -17.5 mag and at a Declination < 20 degree and those galaxies selected have been observed using the Prompt 5 telescope and are part of the ongoing DLT40 search. The first 59 galaxies represent the 4.3% of all galaxies within 40.0 Mpc in the Glade catalogue within the LVC error region for the GW trigger and contains 13.1% of all B band luminosity of those galaxies. After updating our observing schedule, the 114 galaxies represent the 7.4% of all galaxies and contains 27.5% of all B band luminosity. No interesting transients have been identified down to a limit magnitude of 19.0.

Below follow the list of galaxies observed:
