GCN Circular 8158

Subject
GRB080825B: Swift/UVOT Upper Limits

P. J. Brown (PSU) reports on behalf of the Swift/UVOT team:

The Swift/UVOT observed the field of GRB 080825B
starting about 45 ks after the SuperAGILE detection
(Evangelista et al., GCN Circ. 8133).  We do not detect
the optical afterglow seen by Thoene et al. (GCN Circ. 8135)
in any of the UVOT filters down to the following 3 sigma
upper limits.

Filter  T_start(s) T_stop  Exp(s)   MagLimit

uvw1    67248      73020   1036     >20.9

v       45144      61472   1234     >20.5

The above magnitudes are not corrected for the Galactic extinction
corresponding to a reddening of E(B-V) ~ 0.25 mag (Schlegel et al.,
1998, ApJS, 500, 525).  The photometry is on the UVOT photometric
system described in Poole et al. (2008, MNRAS, 383,627).
