A.J. Castro-Tirado (IAA-CSIC, Granada), I. Bond (Massey Univ., Auckland), P. Kilmartin (Univ. of Canterbury), A. de Ugarte Postigo, J. Gorosabel, M. Jel�nek (IAA-CSIC), and Ph. Yock (Univ. of Auckland) report: "Following the detection by SWIFT of the short/soft GRB 050202 (Tueller et al. GCN Circ. 3005) we imaged the error box with the 0.6 m telescope at Mt. John University Observatory. We obtained 3 x 300s images with the MOA camera (+ wide R-band filter) starting on 2.674 Feb (i.e. 12.6 hr after the event). Observations were performed at high airmass, prior to the sunrise. Comparison of the stacked image with the DSS-2 plates revealed no variable source to about R = 20."
