GCN Circular 20132
A. Nicuesa Guelbenzu, S. Schmidl (both TLS Tautenburg) and J. Greiner (MPE Garching) report on behalf of the GROND team: We observed the field of GRB 161104A (Swift trigger 720568; Mingo et al., GCN 20123) simultaneously in g'r'i'z'JHK with GROND (Greiner et al. 2008, PASP 120, 405) mounted at the 2.2m MPG telescope at the ESO La Silla Observatory (Chile). Observations started at 04:00 UT on 2016-11-05, 18 hours after the GRB trigger. They were performed at an average seeing of 1" and at an average airmass of 1.2. Inside the enhanced 3.2" XRT position (GCN 20124, Goad et al.) we find a single source at coordinates: Source A RA (J2000.0) = 05:11:34.46 DEC (J2000.0) = -51:27:36.3 with an uncertainty of 0.5" in each coordinate. At the border of the XRT error circle lie two more sources at coordinates: Source B RA (J2000.0) = 05:11:34.31 DEC (J2000.0) = -51:27:33.6 Source C RA (J2000.0) = 05:11:34.73 DEC (J2000.0) = -51:27:34.2 Their r'-band AB magnitudes are: Source A r' = 24.1 +- 0.1 mag, Source B r' = 24.3 +- 0.1 mag, Source C r' = 25.1 +- 0.3 mag, For the moment no evidence for a fading of any of these objects can be stated. Given magnitudes are calibrated against GROND zeropoints and are not corrected for the Galactic foreground extinction corresponding to a reddening of E_(B-V) = 0.01 mag in the direction of the burst (Schlafly & Finkbeiner 2011). We thank Angela Hempel, La Silla, for performing the observations.
