We observed the field of the likely long Fermi GRB 210524B  (trigger
643548039, GCN #30074, Fermi GBM Team) with the DDOTI/OAN wide-field imager
at the Observatorio Astron��mico Nacional on Sierra San Pedro M��rtir ( on 2021-05-25 from 03:32:24 to 04:48:24 UTC
(16.19 to 17.46 hours  after the event).

We observed a region of 20.4 degrees in RA by 20.4 degrees in declination,
with a 3 x 2 grid, centered on the Fermi GBM Final Position RA: 148.460
DEC: 7.79 (J2000 degrees). This region contains 6 instrumental fields or
about 400 square degrees. We obtained 600 to 720 seconds of exposure per
instrumental field in the w filter. We obtained AB photometry by
calibration against the APASS catalog.

We detect no likely candidate for the afterglow to our 10-sigma upper
limits of w = 18.52 - 18.84 (inter-quartile).

We thank the staff of the Observatorio Astron��mico Nacional in San Pedro
