I have taken BVI images of this object last night.
The position is:
RA 17 56 14.04, DE -29 42 58.2 (J2000.0)

At JD 2458880.89604 the V magnitude was 11.18 (+/-0.01) mag, B magnitude was 12.42 (+/-0.03). Airmass was 1.8.
Still need to find I magnitudes for the comp stars as the ones chosen did not have I mags in the UCAC4 database.
Data will be sent to the AAVSO database.
