We can confirm the presence of a relatively bright counterpart at coordinates:

R.A. = 17h39m50s.95, Decl. = -23o 50'00".9 (equinox 2000.0; UCAC-2
catalogue reference stars).

Our multicolor photometry provides the following values: 2008, May.
26.31, B= +11.42, V= +10.45, R= +9.81 (estimated accuracy +/- 0.05
magnitudes in each color).

Our image of this transient is available at the following Url:
