telescope of Maidanak Astronomical Observatory on Dec. 22 between (UT) 15:41
and 16:06. A set of 7x180 s images were obtained in R-band. We do not detect
the object at the location of the candidate optical counterpart reported by
Halpern & Tyagi (GCN 4381). Limiting magnitude of the stacked image is based
on USNO-B1.0:
