Bogdanov (Nikolaev State Univ.), S. Guziy and A. J. Castro-Tirado (IAA-CSIC), report: Following the detection of GRB 050701 by Swift/BAT (Boyd et al, GCN 3356), we obtained R- & I-band images starting 5.0 hours after the trigger, at the 0.6 m and 1.8 m telescopes at Mt. John Astronomical Observatory. No new source is detected within the 6" radius XRT error circle (Hurkett et al., GCN 3560) down to the DSS-2 limiting magnitude. We also notice that there is considerable extinction towards this line of sight. This message can be cited.
