"We observed the error box of GRB010126 on January 27, 2001, in poor

Two CCD frames, 13'X13', centered on the error box center reported by
K. Hurley on GCN922, were obtained in R band with start times UT 01:05:00
(30 min) and UT 01:39:00 (20 min), respectively.
A preliminary inspection of the two frames shows a possible variable
object (r.a. 11 57 07.3, de. 49 44 26.5) not present in the DSSII-red,
barely over the plate detection limit.  This object, by comparison
between the two frames, seems to be fading.  Deeper analysis is in
