K. Torii (Osaka U.) reports:

 The entire error region of GRB050209 (HETE trigger #11568) was
observed with 0.3-m remote telescope in the New Mexico Skies
Observatory. The imaging started at 03:57 UT and 120-s exposures in
I-band was repeated.
 As a result of the preliminary analysis, we do not identify a new
object brighter than 17 mag (120s x 5 frames, USNO-A2.0 R magnitude).
