"We have imaged the proposed optical counterpart (GCN #961) of GRB010222
(GCN #959, 960) on February 23 in the B and V bands with the 152 cm
Loiano telescope (plus EEV CCD) of the Observatory of Bologna. 

The seeing was 4 arcseconds.  The preliminary magnitudes are given with respect
to the comparison star "A"  (GCN 963) = USNO 1275-08542334.

 23.174          B       2400          2.04 +/- 0.07
 23.199          V       1800          2.69 +/- 0.09

Thus assuming for the star "A"  B=17.60, then the OT had B = 19.64 +/- 0.07".
