[1] Shimanovskaya E., Oknyansky V., Artamonov B. New estimates of time delays in the gravitationally lensed system pg1115+080 // arXiv:1502.05392. — 2015. — P. 1–22. We analyze all publicly available long-term optical observations of the gravitationally lensed quasar PG1115+080 for the purpose of estimating time delays between its four components. In particular, the light curves of PG1115+080 components obtained in 2001-2006 at Maidanak observatory (Uzbekistan) (Tsvetkova et. al. 2010} are considered. We find that the linear trend is observed in 2006 in light curves of all four components with fast variations only in the A1 and C components that can be due to microlensing and observational errors. Application of the MCCF method (Oknyansky 1993) to the photometric data obtained in 2004-2005 gives values of time delays τBC=22+2−3, τAC=12+2−1 and τBA=10+2−3 days, which are in agreement with the results received earlier by Schechter and Barkana for 1995-1996 light curves with two different methods of statistic analysis. However, our estimates of τBA and τBC differ from the values received by the group of Vakulik based on the same Maidanak data (Vakulik et. al. 2009). The ratio τAC/τBA is equal to ∼1.2 that is close to the value, received by Barkana (∼1.13) and predicted by lens models (∼1.4), unlike the values received by Schechter (∼0.7) and Vakulik (∼2.7).
