On 2014 November 3, we observed the recently discovered INTEGRAL source IGR J17454-2919 (ATels #6530, #6574 and #6602) with Chandra HETGS for 20ks.
The J2000.0 Chandra position we obtain is
RA: 17 45 27.689
DEC: -29 19 53.83
(90% uncertainty of 0.6")
This position (2.4" away from the Swift position, ATel #6530), is consistent with the source 2MASS J17452768-2919534 (J=16.227, H=13.038+-0.06, Ks=11.365+-0.024). This candidate counterpart is also consistent with the Swift error circle of ATel #6530.
We encourage follow-up multi-wavelength observations.
