GCN Circular 16286
P D'Avanzo, A. Melandri, M. G. Bernardini (INAF-OAB), M. Cecconi, G. Mainella (INAF/TNG) report on behalf of a larger collaboration: We observed the field of the short GRB 140516A (Bernardini et al. GCN 16285) using the DOLORES camera on the 3.6m TNG telescope sited in Canary Islands. We obtained four images with the r SDSS filter, each one lasting 180 s, at a mean time of 1.55 hours after the burst. In the co-added image we do not detect any optical afterglow inside the XRT error circle reported by Bernardini et al. (GCN 16285). The 3sigma limiting magnitude is r = 23.0 (AB).
