Eckert et al. (Atel #4925) report a new INTEGRAL ISGRI transient, IGR J18245-2452, consistent with the location of the globular cluster M28, but with a large (1.4', 90% conf) error circle. We used the UK Swift Science Centre XRT products tool, and our own processing, to analyze a Swift observation of IGR J18245-2452 (PI Ferrigno), which started on March 29, 2013 and lasted 1977 seconds. The transient is clearly detected and heavily piled-up, but the PSF is symmetrical, allowing a reliable centroid position.
