N. Mirabal & J. P. Halpern (Columbia U.) report on behalf of the
MDM Observatory GRB follow-up team:

"We observed the entire Swift BAT error circle of short GRB 061210
(Cannizzo et al., GCN 5904; Palmer et al., GCN 5905) in the I band
on the MDM 1.3m telescope.  Combined exposures obtained in the
interval 39-66 minutes after the burst show no new object to a
limiting magnitude of I~18.5 in comparison with the USNO-B1.0
catalog, despite high background from the nearby bright moon.

This message may be cited."
