GCN Circular 19623

Subject
GRB 160629A: SAO RAS independent OT detection
Date

From
Moskvitin Alexander at SAO RAS <mosk@sao.ru>
V. Sokolov, A. Valeev, A. Moskvitin and V. Komarova (SAO RAS)
report on behalf of a larger team.

We observed the error box of INTEGRAL GRB 160629A (Gotz et al.
GCNC #19621) with the SAO RAS 6-meter telescope BTA + Scorpio.
The observations started since ~10 minutes after the trigger.
Several images in Rc band were obtained.

We find a fading source with the coordinates

R.A. =  00:19:27.1
Dec. = +76:58:00.7
error = 0".5

This object is consistent with the OT reported by Klotz et al.
(GCNC #19622).

We used USNO-B1 star 1669-0002297 (R.A = 00:19:31.12;
Dec. = +76:57:41.3) with R2 = 15.53 for the calibrations.
Preliminary magnitudes of OT are as following.
