GCN Circular 20152
Klotz A., Turpin D., Atteia J.L. (CNRS-OMP-IRAP), Boer, M., Laugier, R. (CNRS-ARTEMIS), Gendre B. (UVI - Etelman Obs.) report: We imaged the field of GRB 161105A detected by SWIFT (trigger 720697) with the TAROT robotic telescope (D=25cm) located at the European Southern Observatory, La Silla observatory, Chile. The observations started 27.4s after the GRB trigger (14.8s after the notice). The elevation of the field increased from 31 degrees above horizon and weather conditions were excellent. The first image is trailed with a duration of 60.0s (see the description in Klotz et al., 2006, A&A 451, L39). We do not detect any OT (in the XRT error box provided by Page et al. GCNC 20131) with a limiting magnitude of: t0+27.4s to t0+87.4s : Rlim = 16.5 Due to technical problems the second image was taken only 743 seconds after the GRB: t0+743.2s to t0+833.2s : Rlim = 19.8 No more candidate were found in the next images taken until 2000 seconds after the GRB at the same limiting magnitude. Magnitudes were estimated with the nearby NOMAD1 stars and are not corrected for galactic dust extinction.
