"Using the ALFOSC on the 2.5m Nordic Optical Telescope, we have
obtained further R-band imaging of the Optical Transient
(OT) of GRB 000926 (GCN #801, #803, #804) on 2000 September
30.83 UT. We also report the results of B-band imaging on
2000 September UT 27.88 - 30.85.
We find the following magnitudes of the OT using R=17.06 and
B=18.50 for the reference star of Halpern et al. (GCN #806,
We note that the colour of the OT, B-R=0.95+-0.05 (Halpern
et al., GCN #824), is similar to that of the OT of GRB 000301C
at z=2.04, B-R=0.91+-0.03 (Jensen et al., astro-ph/0005609).
The estimated intrinsic extinction for this OT was in the range
