We have obtained several R-band exposures centred at the GRB
020410 error box (Giandolfi et al. GCN#1349) starting on 10 Apr 2002
at 16:58 UT, i.e. 6.28 hr after the trigger, with the 0.6 m MOA telescope
at the Mt. John University Observatory in New Zealand. A visual
inspection of the images does not reveal any transient objects down
to the DSS-2 limiting magnitude within the 2' BSAX error box.

This message is quotable.
