Manuscript

Very good paper ;). The authors state that the very high apparent magnitude of the host star (-27) precluded further studies of the host star and planet with their telescope. I aim to follow up the authors' work with my own observations of this mystery planet as it comes to opposition, even though its southerly declination will be a problem.
