We obtained follow-up photometric observations of AT 2016adj (ATel #8651; discovered by BOSS) on UT 2016 Feb 8.68 with the iTelescope 30 at Mt. Stromlo. We performed aperture photometry on the images using the IRAF apphot package and calibrated the results using the AAVSO Photometric All-Sky Survey (APASS; Henden et al. 2015). The colors suggest the object is highly reddened.
