D. A. Kann reports on behalf of the Tautenburg GRB team:

Further inspection of the Tautenburg images (Kann, GCN 4574) reveals an optical 
afterglow candidate within a preliminary XRT error circle (E. Rol, private 
communication) at

R.A. 05 08 25.5
Dec: +69 44 26

with an error of 2" in comparison with the DSS infrared plate.

The candidate is detected in all single frames and does not seem to fade upon 
visual inspection. On the other hand, the object does not move over one hour of 
observation.
