GCN Circular 4207
S. Klose, P. Ferrero, D. A. Kann, B. Stecklum, and U. Laux, Thueringer Landessternwarte Tautenburg, report: Tautenburg observed the error box of the short/hard GRB 051103 (Golenetskii et al. 2005, GCN 4197) on Nov 6/7 in R (23:15 UT - 23:59 UT) and V (00:01 UT - 0:44 UT) using the prime focus CCD camera. These observations were motivated by the fact that we had imaged M81 in June 2005 using the same instrumental setup and the same filters. The combined R-band images of both runs go notably deeper than the DSS2 red, the combined V-band images are of similar depth. Following the suggestion by Lipunov et al. (GCN 4206), we have analyzed if there is evidence for a brightening of the galaxy PGC 028505 in the GRB error box due to an underlying transient source. No such evidence has been found. In addition, we set a conservative upper limit of R=21 on any transient within a radius of 30 arcsec around PGC 028505, excluding its bright bulge. This message may be cited.
