report on behalf of a larger collaboration:

We have observed the afterglow of GRB 091029 (Grupe et
al. GCN 10097) using the 0.6m Yock-Allen robotic telescope
(BOOTES-3). A 24x60s combined unfiltered exposure with
mid epoch October 29.450 UT (6.9 h after the burst) shows the
afterglow at a magnitude of R = 18.5 +/- 0.2 as compared to
USNO-B1 star n. 0340-0030266 (RA, Dec = 04:00:39.53,
-55:56:55.17, R2 = 16.66).

Further analysis is ongoing.
