The outer Solar System object (29981) 1999 TD10 was observed simultaneously in the R, and J and H bands in September 2001, and in B, V, R, and I in October 2002. We derive B - V = 0.80 +/- 0.05 mag, V - R = 0.48 +/- 0.05 mag, R - I = 0.44 +/- 0.05 mag, R - J = 1.24 +/- 0.05 mag, and J - H = 0.61 +/- 0.07 mag. Combining our data with the data from Rousselot et al. (2003, Astron. Astrophys. 407, 1139) we derive a synodic period of 15.382 +/- 0.001 hr in agreement with the period from Rousselot et al. Our observations at the same time, with better S/N and seeing, show no evidence of a coma, contrary to the claim by Choi et al. (2003, Icarus 165, 101). (C) 2004 Elsevier Inc. All rights reserved.
