GCN Circular 1038
P.A. Price, T.S. Axelrod and B.P. Schmidt (RSAA, ANU) report: "We have observed the error box of GRB 010412 (Piro et al., GCN #1033; Hurley et al., GCN #1036) with the robotic 50-inch telescope at Mount Stromlo Observatory at 2001 Apr 13.73 UT. Our 3x300 sec exposures cover the entire error box to a limiting magnitude of R ~ 20.0 mag, based on common stars with the USNO-A2.0 catalogue. We do not detect any optical transient within the error box, based on visual comparison with the Digital Palomar Sky Survey. The high stellar density and large Galactic reddening (A_V ~ 1.5 mag) at this low Galactic latitude (-4.2 deg) may, however, obscure a potential OT." This message may be cited.
