GRB 030329: wide-field photograph by R. Tamura 1 hr after the burst T. Kato (Kyoto U), R. Tamura and T. Inone (Akashi Municipal Planetarium) report: Ryuichi Tamura (Japanese amateur astronomer) incidentally took wide-field photographs around the afterglow of GRB 030329 one hour after the burst. The photographs were taken at two epochs covering 12:28-12:35 UT (starting at 51 min after the burst) and 12:35-12:42 UT. No obvious optical afterglow was detected on these images. A quick look of the first image has yielded an upper limit of about 8.5 mag. Further analysis of the images is in progress.
