We reducted our images corresponds to final error box (GCN 18858).

We observed localizations of the G184098 since 2015-09-20 
03:25:02 till  2015-09-20 03:25:02 to every night for ~2 hours before sunrise, when the 
field reached a 15 degrees altitude. We miss full 2015-09-18 night due to 
bad weather. Totaly we cover 44.88% of full probability of final error box 
with upper limits ~19.0.
