on behalf of the REM/ROSS team
We observed the field of the possible GRB 061218 (Zane et al. GCN 5936) with
the robotic 60-cm REM telescope located at La Silla (Chile). A set of
observations was performed automatically in the optical and near
infrared filters (V, R, I and J, H, K, z) starting on 2006 December 18
at 04:07:14 UT, 71 s after the BAT trigger and 129 s after the GRB time.
Preliminary analysis of the whole dataset does not show any new
variable source inside the BAT error box.
The 3-sigma limiting magnitudes are:
