To study diffractive photon production at HERA, we compute the projection of the $\gamma^*\gamma$ impact-factor on the BFKL leading-order eigenfunctions $E^{n,\nu}$ for non-zero transfer. This calculation supplements former ones performed for n=0. We provide an expression for $n=\pm 2$ and check that all the other components are zero.
