GCN Circular 2900
Melissa Nysewander, Matt Bayliss, Andrew Foster, and Dan Reichart report on behalf of the U. North Carolina team of the FUN GRB Collaboration: We imaged an 11.7 arcmin x 11.7 arcmin field near the center of the localization of GRB 041219c (Markwardt et al., GCN 2886) for 70 x 60 sec in V beginning 29.0 hours after the burst with PROMPT Telescope 3 at CTIO. Visual comparison to POSS2-Red reveals no obvious transients. Calibration to 10 NOMAD-V stars yields a 3-sigma limiting magnitude of V = 20.4 at a mean time of 30.0 hours after the burst for this region. Our image can be found at: http://www.physics.unc.edu/~mnysewan/grb041219c.html Construction and commissioning of PROMPT Telescope 3 began only three days prior to this burst. Despite this, the observations were conducted completely remotely from La Serena.
