GRB090408 : TAOS optical observations

S.K. King, K.Y. Huang, S.Y. Wang and the TAOS team

The four 50cm TAOS telescopes observed GRB 090408 position (Stroh et
al, GCN9110) at 91s after the burst. No new optical emission was
detected in the BAT possition error range. The 3-sigma limiting
magnitude, compared with USNOB red stars, are as follows:

  Mean Dealy(s)   Exposure time   Limit mag.  Telescope
    157            5s x15             15.2         TAOSB
    221.5          1s x60             14.8         TAOSD
