We observed the field of the Fermi/GBM likely long GRB 201201A (Fermi GBM Team,
GCN Circ. 28972) with the DDOTI wide-field imager at the Observatorio
Astron��mico Nacional on Sierra San Pedro Martir (

We observed a region covering 20.4 degrees in RA and 20.4 degrees in declination
(about 416 square degrees) centered on 19:23:21.60 +16:54:36.0 (J2000). We
obtained between 120 and 360 seconds of exposure in the w filter. We calibrated
our images against the APASS catalog. Our 10-sigma limiting magnitudes vary from
w = 16.4 to 18.2.

Compared to the USNO-B1, Pan-STARRS DR1, and APASS DR10 catalogs, we detect no
uncataloged sources to our 10-sigma limit.

We thank the staff of the Observatorio Astronomico Nacional in San Pedro Martir.
