We obtained follow-up photometric observations of ASASSN-16kt (ATel #9538 & ATel #9539) with LCOGT 1m telescope at Sutherland, South Africa (SAAO). 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).
