GCN Circular 4421
K.V. Garimella, A.L. Homewood, D.H. Hartmann (Clemson University), and G.D. Henson (ETSU) on behalf of the SARA Consortium and the Clemson GRB Follow-Up Team: We began observations of GRB 051227 (Barbier et al, GCN 4397) beginning December 28th, 06:20:31UT and ending 07:36:35UT approximately 12 hours after the Swift Trigger (trigger=174738). We obtained 15 300-second exposures in R-band with the SARA 0.9m telescope on Kitt Peak. Coadding all exposures and comparing with the USNO A2.0 catalog reveals no new source down to a detection limit of R=21.55 +/- 0.20 mag.
