Initially, we find 2 unfiltered post flare images in MASTER-Net data base of the blazar B2 0619+33 ( F.K. Schinzel, ATEL 2829, Kovalev et al. 2007, AJ 133, 1236, and 2831, 2848, 2849 ) at 15-16 sept 2010.
The reduction of the unfiltered images give:
2010-09-15 23:37:53 m=18.42+-0.04
2010-09-16 00:17:42 m=18.38+-0.04
After that we have made 6 hours monitoring in R and V band at 21-22 sep night under the good weather condition but with bright Moon. We find optical decay from 17.1 to 17.5 in R band.
Between 2010-09-21 21:00 and 2010-09-21 02:00 (UT) light curve is well approximated as:
R = A + B (t - 21:00), with A= 17.22 +- 0.03, B = (-0.05+-0.01) hour-1, t<02:00 22 sep
V = C + D (t - 21:00), with C= 17.7 +- 0.2, D = (0.014 +- 0.037) hour-1 , t<02:00 22sep
The light curve is available at
