Vitali report on behalf of the REM team:
The robotic 60-cm REM telescope located at La Silla (Chile) observed
automatically the field of the GRB 080916 on
Sep 16 starting from about 20 s after the GRB time. We see a source
not present in the 2MASS catalogue with approximately H~14.5 one
minute after the burst at the coordinates RA=22:25:06.19,
DEC=-57:01:24.1 (error 1 arcsec).
Further observations are in progress.
[GCN OPS NOTE(16sep08): The author requests that people should use
the 8238 Circular as the primary source. The 8239 Circular was
the result of multiple efforts of a distributed team.]
