We performed some follow-up of this object remotely through a 0.43-m
f/6.8 astrograph + CCD of ITelescope network (MPC Code  Q62 - Siding
Spring, AU).

On our images taken on July 27.7, 2013 we can confirm the presence of
an optical counterpart with R-filtered CCD magnitude 13.0 and
V-filtered CCD magnitude 12.6 at coordinates:

R.A. = 01 36 48.20, Decl.= +15 45 31.0

(equinox 2000.0; UCAC-3 catalogue reference stars).

the archive POSS2/UKSTU plate (R Filter - 1996):
