GRB 060719: Swift/UVOT Upper Limits
2006-07-19T20:35:05Z (18 years ago)
Adam Morgan at PSU/Swift-UVOT <>
A. Morgan, P. Brown (PSU), M. Stamatikos (GSFC/ORAU) on
behalf of the Swift/UVOT team:

The Swift UVOT began taking data on the field of GRB
060719 67 s after the BAT trigger (Stamatikos et al.,
GCN 5339).  No new source, relative to the DSS, is seen
inside the refined XRT error circle (Conciatore et al.,
GCN 5348).  The 3-sigma upper limits for the first finding
charts and the coadded images are listed below.

Finding charts:

Filter  Midpoint (s)  Exposure (s)    3-sigma UL
White   137           100             19.84
V       392           400             19.21

Coadded images:

Filter  T_range(s)    EXPOSURE (s)    3-sigma UL
White   87-17818      2240            21.68
V       67-22697      2117            20.27
B       669-16906     1298            21.15
U       646-6461      432             19.88
UVW1    622-24096     912             20.52
UVM2    598-23601     1279            21.15
UVW2    699-18307     1558            21.18

T_range is calculated from the time of the burst. These
upper limits have not been corrected for the estimated
Galactic reddening of E_{B-V} = 0.066 mag (Schlegel et
al. 1998).
