GRB 200424A: LCO Optical Upper Limit

R. Strausbaugh (U. of the Virgin Islands), A. Cucchiara (U. of the Virgin Islands/College of Marin) report on behalf of a larger collaboration:

We observed INTEGRAL GRB 200424A (Mereghetti et al., GCN 27634) with the LCO 1-m Sinistro instrument at the Siding Spring Observatory, Australia site, on April 24, from 18:48 to 19:23 UT (corresponding to 6.68 to 7.27 hours from the GRB trigger time) with the Bessel I and R filters.

We performed a series of 5x240s exposures in R and 4x240s in I. We do not detect any fading sources in the individual frames (or in stacked images).  Using the USNO-B.1 catalog as reference, we obtain the following 3-sigma upper limits:

R > 24.83

I > 22.93

These magnitudes are not corrected for galactic extinction.
