report on behalf of the MAXI team:

We examined MAXI/GSC all-sky X-ray images (2-20 keV)
after the LVC trigger S191109d at 2019-11-09 01:07:17.220 UTC (GCN 26202).

At the trigger time of S191109d, the high-voltage of MAXI/GSC was off,
and it was turned on at T0+335 sec (+5.6 min).
The first one-orbit (92 min) scan observation with GSC after the event covered 91%
of the 90% credible region of the bayestar skymap from 01:20:47 to 02:33:17 UTC (T0+810 to T0+5160 sec).

No significant new source was found in the region in the one-orbit scan observation.
A typical 1-sigma averaged upper limit obtained in one scan observation
is 20 mCrab at 2-20 keV.

If you require information about X-ray flux by MAXI/GSC at specific coordinates,
please contact the submitter of this circular by email.
