CSS/CRTS observed the following fields using 0.7m Schmidt telescope with 2.8x2.8 sq. degrees FOV with the standard cadence of 4 30-second images 10 minutes apart and did not find any outstanding EM-counterpart candidates to 19.5 mag (2.6-sigma). UT times mentioned below are of the first image of the sequence of 4. Total area covered is approximately 112 sq. degrees.
