LIGO/Virgo/KAGRA S240422ed: J-band non-detection of J-GEM24a

Viraj Karambelkar (Caltech), Mansi Kasliwal (Caltech) on behalf of a larger
collaboration.

We imaged the source J-GEM24a (GCN 36333), reported as a candidate
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 2024-04-28T04:28:38.

We do not detect any source at the location of J-GEM24a, to a depth of J ~
21 mag (AB).

We thank the P200 observer and P200 staff for their cooperation with these
target of opportunity observations.
