Following the discovery of an optical transient in PGC 094244 (GCN 24470,
Lipunov et al.), we obtained follow up V-band imaging with the SuperNova
Integral Field Spectrograph (SNIFS) on the University of Hawai'i 88-inch
(UH88) telescope. The transient is undetected in 2 images to a limiting
magnitude of V ~ 22, calibrated to PanSTARRS sources using the photometric
transformations of Tonry et al. (2012, ApJ).
