Neil Gehrels (GSFC), and Harvey Moseley (GSFC) report:

We observed the field of GRB 130305A (Cummings, et al., GCN 14257) with the
Reionization and Transients Infrared Camera (RATIR; www.ratir.org) on the
1.5m Harold Johnson Telescope at the Observatorio Astron�mico Nacional on
Sierra San Pedro M�rtir from 2013/03 6.12 to 2013/03 6.13 UTC (15.11 to
15.50 hours after the BAT trigger), obtaining a total of 0.31 hours
exposure in the r' and i' bands.

For a source within the Swift-XRT error circle (Malesani, et al., GCN
14263), in comparison with USNO-B1, we derive the following upper limits
(3-sigma) in the AB magnitude system:

  r'  > 23.4
  i'  > 23.1

These magnitudes are not corrected for Galactic extinction in the direction
of the GRB.

We thank the staff of the Observatorio Astron�mico Nacional in San Pedro
M�rtir.
