J. Moran, M. Nysewander, and D. Reichart report on behalf of the FUN GRB

We imaged the entire ~30 square arcminute error circle of the INTEGRAL GRB
040403 (Gotz et al., GCN 2560) with the 0.6-meter Morehead Observatory
telescope beginning 70 minutes after the burst.  We integrated in Rc for
4440 seconds under non-ideal conditions.

Visual comparison to the DSS/POSS2-Red reveals no obvious new source to our
limiting magnitude (Rc ~ 19 mag).
