GRB010213 Optical Observation

J. Zhu, on behalf of the Beijing Astronomical Observatory GRB team, report:

"The 58 x 58 arcmin area centered at the HETE II error circle of GRB010214
(G. Ricker et al, GCN #934) were imaged on Feb. 15.5 (48 hours after the 
burst) with the BAO 0.6-m Schmidt telescope. 13 images were taken (30 min. 
exposure for each) with the BATC-i filter, and the detection limitation 
of the combined image is about R=22.

There is no optical counterpart at the position of the radio source 
mentioned by E. Berger and D. A. Frail (GCN #945) for our detection 
threshold.  (An epoch 2000.0 is assumed for their coordinates.)

The image will be compared with further observations for any variable
