GCN Circular 12623
X.-H. Zhao (YNAO), D. Xu (WIS), J.-R. Mao, J.-M. Bai (YNAO) report: We observed the field of GRB 111201A (Sakamoto et al., GCN 12608) with the 2.4m Gao-Mei-Gu (GMG) telescope equipped with YFOSC. Observation were carried out in a very poor seeing of ~3.6" and 6x600s R-band images were obtained starting at 21:38:32 UT on 2nd Dec. 2011 (i.e., 31.27hrs after the burst). We found a faint and apparently extended source on the southern border of the XRT error circle (Kennea et al., GCN 12609) at coordinates RA(J2000)=12:41:54.6 Dec(J2000)=+32:59:12.7 with a circle error radius of ~4 arcsec. The source had R~22.7 mag, calibrated with nearby USNO B1 stars. We thank W.-M. Yi, H.-Y. Gao and F. He for performing these observations.
