Following an E circular from TA (Guy Hurst), I found the position close to the likely host galaxy about 10d South of the pole star. Object was measured from a single 20s frame with Astrometrica (UCAC4 catalogue - local copy) indicating a magnitude of 16.1 (unfiltered). The fits frame was first calibrated in RA/DEC using AstoArt5.
