Our Raptor telescopes responded to Swift trigger 305011
(Holland et al., GCN 7362) at 11:24:30.8 UTC, 60.0 seconds
after the trigger and 7.3 seconds after receipt of the GCN
packet.  We detect no new optical source at the Swift XRT
position.  Five sigma limiting magnitudes are given for
three of our unfiltered response images in the table below.
Calibration was performed using the USNO B1.0 R-band
