GRB 170101: TAROT Calern observatory optical observations
----------------------------------------------------------------------
Klotz A., Turpin D., Atteia J.L. (CNRS-OMP-IRAP),
Boer, M., Laugier, R. (CNRS-ARTEMIS),
Gendre B. (UVI - Etelman Obs.) report:

We imaged the field of GRB 170101 detected by SWIFT
(trigger 729293) with the TAROT robotic telescope (D=25cm)
located at the Calern observatory, France.

The observations started 1.48h after the GRB trigger.
The elevation of the field increased from
1 degrees above horizon and weather conditions
were XXX.

---- NO
The date of trigger : t0 = 2017-01-01T02:26:01.824

The first image is trailed with a duration of 180.0s
(see the description in Klotz et al., 2006, A&A 451, L39).
We do not detect any OT with a limiting magnitude of:
t0+5323.3s to t0+5503.3s : R > 15.1

The second image is 180.0s exposure in tracking mode:
t0+5514.3s to t0+5694.3s : R > 16.2

We co-added a series of exposures:
t0+5514.3s to t0+6675.9s : R > 17.7
---- YES
We detect a new fading source in the error box given by SWIFT
We detected the candidate couterpart mentioned by XXX et al. (GCNC XXXX)
at the following position (+/- 3 arcsec):

RA(J2000.0) = XXh XXm XX.XXs
DEC(J2000.0) +XXd XX' XX.X"

OT was R~XX.X at 1.48h after GRB.
----

Magnitudes were estimated with the nearby USNO-B1 stars
and are not corrected for galactic dust extinction.

N.B. Galactic coordinates are lon= 36.4841 lat=+19.1962
and the galactic extinction in R band is 0.4 magnitudes
estimated from D. Schlegel et al. 1998ApJ...500..525S.
