J. Gorosabel (DSRI, Copenhagen) report:

"We have obtained a 300s R-band image of the central third of the
IPN/BATSE errorbox of GRB 000126 (Hurley et al. GCN #525,
Kippen GCN #526) on 2000 Jan 28.14 UT with the 2.5m Nordic
Optical Telescope.
From comparison with DSS-I, we found no obvious optical GRB
counterparts in this part of the errorbox down to the limit of DSS
(R~19.5). The NOT image has a seeing of 1.9" and a limiting
magnitude of 22.2 (4 sigma)."
