As we reported in LVC GCN 21546 MASTER-OAFA have imaged the BAYESTAR 
localization map of LIGO/Virgo G298048 (GCN 21513).

MASTER-SAAO  have new images of  NGC 4993 galaxy starting 2017-08-18 17:06:55 
UT in B, R and unfiletred with magnitude limit 19.8 (Lipunov et al., LVC 
GCN 21570). We see
object in B, R and unfiltered images detected by Coulter et al. (LVC GCN 
21529), Allam et  al. (LVC GCN 21530), Yang et al. (LVC GCN 21531), 
Melandri et al.  (LVC GCN 21532), Lipunov et al., (LVC GCN 21546).

B = 18.5 +- 0.2
R = 17.5 +- 0.2
W = 18.0 +- 0.2

The unfiltered magnitude not changed with respect to first observations 
(Lipunov et al., LVC GCN 21546)
