G.Pizzichini (IASF-CNR, sezione di Bologna), R. Poggiani (Pisa 
University) and I. Bruni (Osservatorio di Bologna) report:

"We observed the field of GRB 050416A (Sakamoto et al., GCN 3264) using
the 1.52-cm G. D. Cassini telescope of Bologna University, equipped with
the BFOSC CCD imager.
We obtained 2x1200s images in Rc light on 2005 April 16.345 and 16.361 UT.
Due to the poor weather conditions, a seeing ~ 3", and the nearness of 
the Moon, we evaluate the limiting magnitude of our co-added images
at ~ 19.6.
We did not detect the OT given by Bradley et al. (GCN 3265).

This message may be cited."
