"We have imaged the central part of the updated IPN error box for
GRB 020603 (Hurley et al., GCN 1412) with the 3.58-m Telescope
Nazionale Galileo (+ DOLORES, 9.4' x 9.4' FOV) at La Palma.
A single R-band frame (300-s exposure time) was obtained on
Jun 6.135 UT (i.e. 57 hours after the GRB).  No new objects are
seen within the fraction of the error box imaged (about 80 %)
down to the DSS-2 (R-band) limiting magnitude."
