A. N. Morgan and J. S. Bloom (UC Berkeley) report:

We continued to observe the location of the NIR afterglow of GRB
110205A (Morgan et al. GCN 11636) with the 1.3m PAIRITEL located at
Mt. Hopkins, Arizona throughout the night of February 5th and again on
2011-02-06.  The afterglow continued to be well detected throughout
the first night.

The preliminary photometry yields:

The late time decay index is consistent with that seen in the optical
(Urata et al. GCN 11648).  All magnitudes are given in the Vega
system, calibrated to 2MASS. No correction for Galactic extinction has
been made to the above reported values.
