GRB050801.769: Unchanged decay slope

"We have obtained additional DK-1.5m R-band imaging (Aug 3.0 UT) of the
optical afterglow (Rykoff et al. GCN#3726) of GRB050801.769 (Band et
al. GCN#3725).
Extending the fit from Fynbo et al. (GCN#3726) yields a smooth
well-fitting power-law from t-t0=0.44h to 29.5h, with an R-band decay
slope of -1.31 +- 0.04.

The lightcurve is shown at: "
