J. Gorosabel (DSRI) report:

"We have performed aperture photometry of the afterglow candidate for
GRB 011211 reported in GCN#1191 (Grav et al.), and obtain the
following results based on a preliminary photometric calibration:

For USNO-star U0675_11427359 at RA,Dec (J2000) = (11:15:19.00,
-21:58:04.9) we obtain:

I = 17.07, R = 17.90, V = 18.18, B = 18.65

For the afterglow candidate we measure:

Tel.      Date (UT)   exp    filter  mag.
NOT-2.5m  Dec.12.22   900s     R    20.07
NOT-2.5m  Dec.12.28   300s     B    21.41
NOT-2.5m  Dec.12.28   300s    g-i   20.09
NOT-2.5m  Dec.12.29   300s     V    21.14

DK-1.5m   Dec.12.28  4200s     R    20.12
DK-1.5m   Dec.12.36   300s     V    21.21

Conservative errors on the absolute photometry is ~0.15 mag, due
to lack of precise calibration. Errors relative to the USNO-star
are around a few percent.
