P. Goldoni, on behalf of the REM/ROSS Team, report:
We imaged the field of GRB 060602B (Schady et al., GCN 5200) with
the 60 cm robotic telescope REM starting at June 3, 01:37:43.5 UT,
i.e about 1.72 hours after the burst.
Due to poor meteo conditions at LaSilla a short serie of images
with the infrared camera were taken with J,H and K filters for
a total integration time of 100s in each filter.
The analysis of the entire dataset do not show any infrared source
inside of XRT error circle (Schady et al., GCN 5200; Beardmore et al.,
GCN 5209) down to limiting magnitude of 15.1, 13.2 and 12.2
respectively (5 sigma uper limit)
