Fynbo, Jens Hjorth (Niels Bohr Institute) report:

"Using DFOSC on the Danish 1.5m Telescope on La Silla we have obtained
2550s R-band imaging of the BAT error circle for GRB 050412 (GCN #3237)
starting at 1.2 hr after the GRB trigger. In the XRT error-circle (GCN
#3241) we detect a single source. The estimated magnitude of this source
at t+1.5h is R ~ 22."
