report: 

"We ask that the previous message (GCN #545) concerning an optical detection
at the position of the Chandra X-ray source is disregarded.  As a matter of
fact, We do not detect any object at the X-ray  position given by Chandra (GCN
#544) in our combined 3000s  1.54-m Danish Telescope R-band image (obtained
on Feb 11.05 2000 UT) down to a limit of R~23.3.   An image of the field is
available at: http://www.astro.ku.dk/~brian_j/grb/grb000210 "
