GCN Circular 1750
B. McLeod (CfA), N. Caldwell, T. Grav, K. Luhman (CfA), P. Garnavich (Notre Dame), and K.Z. Stanek (CfA) We observed the afterglow of GRB 021211 (GCN 1731) with the MMT plus MiniCam imager beginning Dec. 12.3 (UT) (20.6 hours after the burst). The afterglow is well detected in B,V,R filters and the R-band magnitude is estimated to be 23.20+/-0.18 based on Landolt standards observed the previous night (although some cirrus was seen on the night the afterglow was observed). The image is consistent with a point source and is quite blue compared to stars in the field. The R-band image shows very faint emission 1" to the northeast of the afterglow which may be the host galaxy (see GCN 1744).
