A. Melandri (INAF-OAB), C. Guidorzi (U. Ferrara) and C. G. Mundell  
(Liverpool) report on behalf of a larger collaboration:

The 2-m Faulkes Telescope North (FTN) automatically began observing  
GRB130420B (Oates et al., GCN 14411) on April 20, 12:59:50 UT  
corresponding to ~200 seconds after the burst event.

We detect no new, uncatalogued source in the BAT error circle down to  
the following limiting magnitudes:

Mid time from   Exp    Filter   Mag limit
trigger (min)   (sec)
28.62           540      R       > 20.5
32.75           520      I        > 20.0

The magnitudes are calibrated against nearby USNO-B1.0 stars.
