I. Steele (Liverpool), R. Smith (Liverpool), A. Gomboc (Ljubljana) report:

"We observed the afterglow of GRB041218 with the 2.0m Liverpool Telescope
on La Palma. We obtained RI imaging commencing 4.3 hours after the
burst under poor seeing conditions. We report R and I estimates:

I = 20.1 +/- 0.2 mag at Dec 18.840  (exposure time = 2x120s)
R = 20.6 +/- 0.2 mag at Dec 18.837  (exposure time = 2x120s)
These values were derived using Henden calibration (GCN 2869)"
