GCN Circular 7115
C. Guidorzi, P. Romano (Univ. Bicocca & INAF-OAB), A. Moretti (INAF-OAB) and T.N. Ukwatta (GSFC/GWU), report on behalf of the Swift-XRT team: We recalculated the XRT refined position of GRB 071117 (trigger=296805, Ukwatta et al., GCN Circ. 7098) by excluding the first orbit data, which were affected by the presence of a dead pixel column. In 8.3 ks of Photon Counting mode data spanning 8.7-28 ks after the trigger the position of the X-ray afterglow is RA,Dec =335.04336,-63.44278 degrees, which corresponds to RA(J2000) = 22 20 10.41 Dec(J2000)= -63 26 34.0 with error circle of radius 3.8 arcsec (90%, including boresight uncertainties). The optical afterglow reported by Bloom et al. (GCN Circ. 7110) now lies 1.5" away from the new XRT centroid. This circular is an official product of the Swift-XRT team.
