behalf of the REM team:

The robotic 60-cm REM telescope located at La Silla (Chile) observed  
automatically the field of the GRB 080413B on April 13 08:52:43 UT   
(about 91 seconds after the burst).

The afterglow reported in GCN 7598, 7599 (Stamatikos et al., Kruehler  
et al.) is well detected in our early images at about H~14.3.

Further analyses and observations are in progress.
