N. P. M. Kuin (UCL-MSSL) and K. K. Simpson (PSU) report on behalf of the
Swift/UVOT team:

The Swift/UVOT began settled observations of the field of GRB 200410A
104 s after the BAT trigger (Simpson et al., GCN Circ. 27518).
A source consistent with the XRT position (Goad et al. GCN Circ. 27522)
is detected in the initial UVOT exposures.

The uvot position has been determined from the first white image to be
RA  = 19:58:35.3
Dec = +51:46:53.0
or 299.64717 =51.78138 Deg (J2000) with an error estimate of 0.5".
There are two nearby stars visible at 4 and 6 arcsec.


Preliminary detections and 3-sigma upper limits using the UVOT photometric
system
(Breeveld et al. 2011, AIP Conf. Proc. 1358, 373) for the early exposures
are:

The magnitudes in the table are not corrected for the Galactic extinction
due to the reddening of E(B-V) = 0.15 in the direction of the burst
(Schlegel et al. 1998).
