AbstractWe report the identification of the optical counterpart to the companion of the millisecond pulsar J2317+1439. At the timing position of the pulsar, we find an object with g = 22.96 +/- 0.05, r = 22.86 +/- 0.04, and i = 22.82 +/- 0.05. The magnitudes and colors of the object are consistent with a white dwarf (WD). Compared with WD cooling models, we estimate that it has a mass of 0.39-(+0.13)(0.10) M-circle dot, an effective temperature of 8077(-470)(+550) K, and a cooling age of 10.9 +/- 0.3Gyr. Combining our results with published constraints on the orbital parameters obtained through pulsar timing, we estimate the pulsar mass to be 3.4(-1.)(+1.4) M-circle dot, Although the constraint on the pulsar mass is still weak, there is a significant possibility that the pulsar could be more massive than two solar masses.
