Jesper Nielsen (DARK/Sindal School), Christina Thoene, Chloe Feron,
Johan P. U. Fynbo, Brian L. Jensen, Jens Hjorth (DARK Cosmology Centre),
Christoffer Karoff (IFA/U. of Aarhus) report on behalf or a larger
collaboration:

"Using DFOSC on the Danish 1.5m telescope at La Silla, we have obtained
further (3x600sec) R-band imaging of the field of the Integral-detected
GRB060130 (Mereghetti et al., GCN #4615) around Jan 31.3. By comparing
to our image taken 4.3 hr after the burst (GCN #4620) we place a 3-sigma
upper limit of R=23 on any transient sources 4.3 hr after the burst."
