Following the recent announcement of an X-ray and optical outburst from a previously unknown Galactic transient possibly associated with 1RXH J173523.7-354013 (Israel et al. 2008, ATel #1528) we obtained near-infrared observations of the source using the PANIC camera on the 6.5-m Magellan Baade telescope to search for a possible near-infrared counterpart. The observations were performed on 2008 May 25 09:12-10:02 UT, and we acquired J, H and Ks band images with a total of 600s, 300s, and 300s on-source time respectively.
