on behalf of a larger collaboration:
We observed the field of the possible short GRB 230205A (Ambrosi et al.,
GCN 33271; Page et al., GCN 33277, Sakamoto et al., GCN 33280) using the
T193cm telescope equipped with MISTRAL at Observatoire de Haute-Provence
Six exposures were obtained in the R-band (5x20s + 1x60s + 1x120s +
2x180s) under poor weather conditions from 2023 06 Feb. 03:37:06 UT to
2023 06 Feb 04:07:34 UT.
In the combined last two frames (mid time ~17.57h after trigger),
we do not detect the source and obtain the following upper limit:
R > 20.95 mag (AB)
The photometric calibration was performed using nearby stars from
the PanSTARRS catalog.
No further observations using the MISTRAL instrument mounted on the
T193-OHP are planned.
We acknowledge the excellent support from Observatoire de Haute Provence,
in particular Stephane Favard, Jerome Schmitt.
