GCN Circular 2352
M. Boer, and A. Klotz, CESR/OMP/CNRS, communicate on behalf of the TAROT collaboration. We imaged the 2 degree field of view centered around the position of HETE trigger 2808 (= GRB 030817) with the TAROT automatic instrument. The first observation starts at 0h25m25s UT on Aug. 17th, 2003, i.e. 57s after the GRB trigger on HETE. No new source was detected. Unfortunately the first image is heavily absorbed, and the limit for a new source is approximately R > 12. On an image taken latter, at 0h26m40s UT, the nebulosity lowered, and we reach a limit of R > 15. We note also that the GRB source is located at a low galactic latitude. This message is citable.
