GCN Circular 6874
V. Rumyantsev (CrAO), A. Pozanenko (IKI) report on behalf of larger GRB follow-up collaboration: We observed the error box of short GRB071008 (Moretti et al., GCN 6856) with Shajn 2.6m telescope of CrAO on Oct. 9. Series of images were obtained between (UT) 00:15:12 and 01:30:43 in R filter. The limiting magnitude (3 sigma) of a combined image calibrated against USNO-A2.0 is 24.3 mag. The combined image of a total exposure of 4020 s (67x60 s) covers entire of the refined BAT error box (Fenimore et al., GCN 6869). Within error circles of the two XRT sources (Moretti et al., GCN 6866) we found following optical objects. Within XRT source at RA(J2000) = 10 06 21.24 Dec(J2000)= +44 19 14.5 there is a galaxy S1 which also can be detected in SDSS images. However the galaxy S1 is out of the refined BAT error box (Fenimore et al., GCN 6869). Within XRT source at RA(J2000) = 10 06 12.82 Dec(J2000)= +44 20 40.5 we marginally detect S2 object. It is necessary a second epoch observation to decide about nature of the S2 object. The combined image can be found at http://grb.rssi.ru/GRB071008. The message can be cited.
