We performed some follow-up of this object remotely through a 0.61-m f/6.5 astrograph + CCD) of ITelescope network (MPC Code U69 - Auberry, California - USA). On our images taken on March 16.5, 2015 we can confirm the presence of an optical counterpart with R-CCD magnitude 5.8 at coordinates: R.A. = 18 36 56.85, Decl.= -28 55 40.0(equinox 2000.0; UCAC-4 catalogue reference stars).
