We observed the corrected list of galaxies coincident with LIGO/Virgo and HAWC positions by Leo Singer (GCN 26479).

The observation used the 80cm telescope with the FOV of 2x2 deg^2 of the CHanging Event Survey at the YaoAn observation station(101.1811E, 25.528N) in Yunnan Province, China. 
Our observations started at 12:04:04UT and ends at 12:55:05UT Dec 18, 2019, with 11 exposure 60 seconds in white filter.

Our results for these galaxies:
| RA               | DEC         |  Mag(White) | SDSS(r)    |
| 323.482422 | 5.279632 |  16.42      | 16.50    |
| 323.056030 | 4.832057 |  15.94      | 15.83    |
| 322.921936 | 5.503483 |  15.70      | 15.57    |
| 322.838806 | 5.255421 |  15.60      | 15.41    |
| 322.821228 | 5.553754 |  15.64      | 15.83    |
| 323.173767 | 4.467985 |  16.09      | 16.10    |
| 322.906006 | 5.850705 |  16.69      | 16.84    |
| 323.034882 | 4.482058 |  16.27      | 16.24    |
