We imaged the source Mag24a (GCN 36267, 36274, 36275), reported as a
candidate optical counterpart to the LVK gravitational wave event S240422ed
(GCN 36236) with the Wide-Field Infrared Camera (WIRC) on the 200-inch Hale
Telescope at Palomar Observatory on UTC 2024-04-24T04:24:14.

We do not detect any source at the location of Mag24a, to a depth of J =
21.2 mag (AB).
