GCN Circular 23281
WeiKang Zheng and Alexei V. Filippenko (UC Berkeley) report on behalf of the KAIT GRB team: The 0.76-m Katzman Automatic Imaging Telescope (KAIT), located at Lick Observatory, responded to Swift GRB 180930A (Tohuvavohu et al., GCN 23279) starting at 12:45:41 UT, 112 seconds after the burst under dawn twilight condition. Observations were performed with an automatic sequence in the clear (roughly R), V, and I filters, and the exposure time was 20 s per image. We do not detect any optical afterglow candidate within the enhanced XRT position error circle (Evans et al., GCN 23280) neither in single image, nor in the co-add images. The typical limiting magnitude of our single clear image is about 18.5 mag calibrated to the Pan-STARRS1 catalog.
