and Hugo Schwarz (CTIO) report:

"We have obtained R band observations of GRB 060323 (Vetere et al., GCN
4904) with the 2.56-m Nordic Optical Telescope and StanCam at La Palma.
Observations started at UT 23.95 (8.2hr after the burst) and cover the
position of the Swift XRT source (Kennea et al., GCN 4909).

Inside the XRT error circle we clearly detect the source reported by
Covino et al. (GCN 4911) at a position of:

RA  =  11:37:45.21
Dec = +49:59:07.3

Additionally, we clearly detect the source reported by Kann et al. (GCN
4909). In our combined image it appears extended.

A finding chart of the field of the XRT error-circle can be found at: "
