GCN Circular 15008
W. Fong, E. Berger and R. Chornock (Harvard) report: "We observed the field of the short-duration GRB 130716A (Cummings et al., GCN 15006) with the Gemini Multi-Object Spectrograph mounted on the Gemini North 8-m telescope starting on Jul 17.253 UT (19.45 hr after the burst). We obtained ~15 min of r-band observations in 1" seeing. Calibrated to stars in the SDSS DR9 catalog, we do not detect any optical source within the reported XRT position to a 5-sigma limit of r>24.5 mag. We thank the Gemini staff for their assistance with these observations."
