Astrometry from a stack of 2x60s CCD images made by Róbert Fidrich, Hungary, on July 18.8118 UT:
The position is measured in Astrometrica as RA 05:41:46.567 (±0.12") Dec -71:48:37.70 (±0.10"). For the astrometric solution, 90 reference stars from Gaia DR2 (brightness 11-16 mag) are used, with an astrometric threshold of 0.3". Astrometrica gives dRa=0.11" and dDe=0.09" for the reference star ensemble (the uncertainties above are proper uncertainties for the target star).

Photometry V=14.04 ±0.04 mag using KOPR software. APASS V comparison stars, 7px aperture radius and ACF filter. 5 comparison stars between 12.2 and 13.7 mag, chosen to have B-V<0.8 mag and deviation <0.06 mag.
