GCN Circular 23523
WeiKang Zheng, Keto Zhang, Alexei V. Filippenko, and Sergiy Vasylyev (UC Berkeley) report on behalf of the KAIT GRB team: The 0.76-m Katzman Automatic Imaging Telescope (KAIT), located at Lick Observatory, observed the field of the short GRB181126B (trigger 564897175) detected by the GBM on the Fermi satellite. More than one thousand galaxies were selected from the Glade catalog (http://aquarius.elte.hu/glade/) according to their priority score. On 2018 Nov. 26 UT, KAIT observed 236 of them having top-priority scores, with each clear-filter exposure time being 60 s. The first image was taken at 07:41:13 UT, about 3.8 hr after the burst, and the last image at 11:51:09 UT. Template images were obtained on 2018 Dec. 8 and 9. The images were processed through the KAIT subtraction pipeline to search for potential optical counterparts. 13 known asteroids were detected, but we found no credible transient that might be the optical afterglow of this GRB. None of the 11 transients reported by Ahumada et al. (GCN 23515) was in the field of view of the KAIT images. Our typical limiting mag is 19.0, although some fields have a shallower limiting mag owing to moonlight.
