R-band images containing the error box for 1SAX J0702.6+3850 (IAUC 6854)
were obtained on Mar 29.79 and 30.81 at the 1.52-m telescope at Bologna 
Observatory, on Mar 29.90, 30.91 and 31.95 at the 1.0-m Jacobus Kapteyn 
Telescope at La Palma, Canary Islands, and on Mar 31.02 and 31.92 at the OAN 
1.52-m telescope at the German-Spanish Calar Alto Observatory.  No variable 
object is found down to R = 22.  Any variation was smaller than 0.3.
Observations at other wavelenghts, especially infrared, are encouraged.
