LIGO/Virgo G277583: DLT40 follow-up observation

Sheng Yang (INAF-OAPd, UC Davis), Stefano Valenti(UC Davis), David Sand (TTU), Leonardo Tartaglia (TTU, UC Davis), Enrico Cappellaro(INAF-OAPd), Dan Reichart, Josh Haislip (UNC) report on behalf of the Gravitational Wave Follow-Up by DLT40.

We report the observation of 55 galaxies within the LVC error region for the GW trigger G277583 using the 'bayestar' GW localization map. We selected 112 galaxies from the GWGC catalogue within 80.0% of the trigger error region, within a distance of 40.0 Mpc, brighter that -17.5 mag and at a Declination < 20 degree. 55 of those galaxies have been observed using the Prompt 5 telescope and are part of the ongoing DLT40 search. They represent the 2.1% of all galaxies within 40.0 Mpc in the Glade catalogue within the LVC error region for the GW trigger and contains 4.5% of all B band luminosity of those galaxies. We started to observe this sample of galaxies on 2017-3-13 and monitored them for 2 weeks after the GW trigger. No interesting transients have been identified down to a limit magnitude of 19.5 mag.

Below follow the list of galaxies observed:
