LIGO/Virgo G297595: DLT40 follow-up observation

From

Sheng Yang (INAF-OAPd, UC Davis), Stefano Valenti(UC Davis), David Sand (UA), Leonardo Tartaglia (UA, 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 24 galaxies within the LVC error region for the GW trigger GW170814 using the LIGO bayestar HLV localization map. We selected galaxies from the GWGC catalogue within 99.0% of the trigger error region, within a distance of 40.0 Mpc, brighter than -17.5 mag and at a Declination < 20 degree.
Those selected galaxies have been observed using the Prompt 5 telescope and they are part of the ongoing DLT40 search. The DLT40 search limit magnitude, for those galaxies is 19.0 (open filter scaled to r band). 

Below follow the list of galaxies observed:
