GCN Circular 8788

GRB 090107B optical observations

Arto Oksanen (Hankasalmi Obs., Hankasalmi, Finland) reports via the
AAVSO High Energy Network the following optical observations of the
INTEGRAL burst GRB 090107B (Gotz et al., GCN Circular #8786):

Unfiltered observations were made using a 0.4-meter RC telescope
with an SBIG STL-1001E CCD.  The full INTEGRAL error box was
observed unfiltered starting at 16:35UT, 15 minutes after the
burst.  Combining ten 60-second exposures, we do not see any
optical afterglow to a limiting magnitude of 20.5 (compared
with the DSS2 red plate).

A FITS image of this observation is available at the following URL:
