report on behalf of the REM/ROSS team:
The robotic 60-cm REM telescope, located at La Silla (Chile), observed
automatically the field of GRB 060908 (Evans et al., GCN 5544) with
ROSS optical camera. Observations started at 09:06:21 UT, about 7 min
after the burst, in R, I and V band.
An uncatalogued fading source was observed in all filters at:
This position is consistent with the one reported in GCN 5544 and GCN
In the R initial image the source is at approximately R ~ 17 in 20 sec
Further analysis is in progress.
