report on behalf of the MAXI team:
We examined MAXI/GSC all-sky X-ray images (2-20 keV)
after the LVC trigger S191216ap at 2019-12-16 21:33:38.473 UTC (GCN 26454).
At the trigger time of S191216ap, the high-voltage of MAXI/GSC was on,
but the FOV was out of the 90% credible region of the bayestar skymap.
The first one-orbit (92 min) scan observation with GSC after the event covered 97%
of the 90% credible region of the bayestar skymap from 21:34:38 to 22:13:47 UTC (T0+60 to T0+2409 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.
