We observed 30 host galaxy candidates in the 90% localization area of the
BNS merger candidate, S190425z, detected by LIGO/Virgo (GCN #24168) using
the SQUEAN instrument on the McDonald observatory's 2.1m telescope. The
observation started at 2019-4-25 09:38:57 UT, and the images were taken in
i-band with 120 sec exposure time. No obvious transient has been identified
to a preliminary 3-sigma depth of i=20.0 AB mag. The list of the inspected
targets is given below.
