Ian A. Smith (Rice U) and Heather F. Swan (U Mich) report on 
behalf of the MARGE collaboration:

The Rice University CCD Camera (RUCCD) on the AEOS telescope, 
located at the Maui Space Surveillance System on Haleakala, 
observed the fading counterpart to GRB 051111 (Swift trigger 
163438).  VRI images were taken between 2005-11-11 06:31 UT
(32 minutes after the trigger) and 07:08 UT.  A preliminary 
analysis gives R=17.7 at 07:05 UT in a 30 second exposure.
