GCN Circular 554
SG Bhargavi, Geetanjali Gauba and R Cowsik (Indian Institute of Astrophysics, Bangalore, India 560034) We observed the field of GRB000210 (GCN # 539, 540) using 2.34m Vainu Bappu Telescope (FOV =10') in R and V band filters on 10th and 11th Feb, 2000. On Feb 10, between 14.35-15.18 UT we took 4 frames in R (each 300sec) and a V frame of 600sec. On Feb 11, between 13.66-15.275 UT we took one V (900s) and several R frames of short exposures. Observations were made at airmass > 2.2 and with high background from Moon. At the limit of R=18.0 we donot detect any object at the position of Chandra's x-ray source (GCN # 544, 548) in the combined frames.
